Goliarda Sapienza: Writing as an Art of Freedom

Alberica Bazzoni (University of Warwick)
Carlotta Cossutta (Università del Piemonte orientale)

From a position of marginality and eccentricity, Sapienza gives voice to a radical aspiration to achieve freedom and social transformation, in which writing and literary communication are conferred a fundamental role. Reading her works the seminar will explores themes of freedom, the body, nonconformist gender identities and sexuality, autobiography and political commitment in connection to a variety of philosophical discourses, including Marxism, feminism, psychoanalysis and queer theories.
