Abstract

">

The underlying hypothesis of the research published in this volume is that correspondences are a very useful instrument to explore the mechanisms of intercultural dialogue. In the framework of an annual research of the Department of Educational Sciences of the Roma Tre University, the project that gives the title to this publication analyses a corpus of correspondences from the 19th and 20th centuries. The aim of the research group was to better understand how, in the dual or polyphonic dimension of the "correspondences" genre, two (or more) individual existences confront each other in the course of time and events they go through, elaborating dynamic and shared representations of the world, in particular in situations where the protagonists of the exchange of letters manifest cultural identities under different aspects. The result is a significant mosaic of intercultural and often interdisciplinary experiences. Passing through the letters of Gustave Flaubert, George Sand, Paul Gauguin, Isabelle Eberhardt, Robert Delaunay, Aimé Césaire, Christian Dotremont, Yves Bonnefoy, Cesare Pavese, Giuseppe Cocchiara, Ghita El Khayat, Abdelkébir Khatibi, the articles that compose this volume show how correspondences can contribute to the elaboration of the main points of intercultural tension of their era, always remaining within the framework of the individual experiences and needs which are the subject of these dialogical instances.
