The influx of migrants into modern day Italy created a new literary genre, stories of migration and acculturation. Women migrants are excluded on two levels from the canon, being women and being migrants. This series of translations uses a sexual difference and intersectional feminist frameworks to help amplify the otherized voices of female migrants or second-generation writers with political undercurrents.
