Abstract

Locating Italy: East and West in British-Italian Transactions is part of a series of books that examines cross-cultural processes between Great Britain and Italy. The volume explores for the first time British-Italian cultural exchanges in terms of East-West, rather than North-South. In so doing, it reveals that Italy has long been a meeting point of East and West as much as one of North and South. Comprising essays from the fields of history, political science, the philosophy of language, linguistics, literature, and the arts, the collection illustrates that the dynamics of British-Italian transactions have long been shaped by a fascinating process of location and relocation. Locating Italy is pathbreaking in that it questions the traditional categories of North, South, East and West in interactions between these two countries and their respective cultures.
