Penelope and Her Sisters: Weaving Tradition and Modernity in Transnational Italian Settings

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



Abstract:

From a feminist cultural studies perspective, I will analyze how Southern Italian immigrant women brought the art of embroidering with them and both transformed their role in the new society and promoted a mutual engagement between transnational communities. Their creative expressions also counteracted forms of inequality within society and family. They proved that the premodern and modern can exist together within feminist values, not only in material conditions but in philosophy and outlook. Employing the “minor” cultural value attributed to the “corredo” (hope chest), they importantly bridged cultural and local ideas of "home" with the global theories of cultural production.
