Abstract

Contemporary border regimes are confronting us with a double question: Can one give an account of oneself and narrate one’s story, even if things are taking place do not make stories possible in language? Can we possibly think of a politics of memory that is neither bound to given places nor to language, but that rather displaces conventional realms of memory? In the context of this double question, my paper is going to trace a few thoughts on a transitional space of memory that has recently emerged on the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa.
