Of Critical Cosmopolitanism and Clandestine Passage: Redefining Euro-Mediterranean Relations

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Concepts of vernacular modernity (Knauft, Eisenstadt) have allowed the consideration of local experiences of difference in relation to transcultural, uneven larger power structures. As they have shifted the focus away from purely economic or political frameworks, they have advantageously set subjective experiences and engagements with global modernity in relief. In his discussion of vernacular modernities, Knauft impresses that the conceptualization of globalization undergoes a shift “particularly in cultural terms, from globalism in general to a horizontal stratification of global subject positions- to cosmopolitanism, flexible citizenship, various types of transnationalism, or different kinds of flow.” This paper examines such experiences of “critical cosmopolitanisms” (Mignolo) in the poetry of Gibraltarian Trino Cruz. Rewriting modes of belonging outside of the territoriality of the nation, this poet directly situates himself in circumstances of exile and reconfigures critical, revised transnationalism as the only adequate corrective to discriminatory global fluxes and circuits of production. Offering a fractal perspective informed by his dialectical relation to his cultural and locational identity, Cruz proposes a vision of Euro-Mediterranean relations that displaces the framing of the space of the sea along the lines of capitalist exploitation and cultural division between North and South. Through his focus on the trope of the sea, this time dissociated from its representations as either a limit to the land or as a contact zone between both shores and civilizational models, Cruz redefines the Mediterranean as a space of transit where identities (European and North African) are rewritten and hybridized.
