The research project “New Typologies of European (E/Im)Migration and Their Representation in Twenty-First-Century Literature in English”, takes as a starting point the literary representation of the new types of emigrants and immigrants in Europe as portrayed in the literature in English written in the first decade of the twenty-first century, with the goal of demonstrating that writers have indeed discussed and represented a wide range of human migrations, and have created a new vocabulary when referring to the new European citizens. They have also explored the diverse motives that induce emigrants and immigrants to cross borders; motives that not only obey to economic or political considerations, but also include cultural interests, career prospects, personal aspirations, and even affective relationships. This present project fills a void we have detected in literary studies and in cultural criticism which, in our opinion, have been and still are overly focused upon the migratory movements of the twentieth century previous to the 1990s, without taking into account that many writers are already reflecting upon and representing a new and wider typology of migrants. Our project also contests those critical voices that, touching upon the new migratory movements of the twenty-first century, contend that literature has not yet fully dealt with them, or that a true literature of migration does not exist to date.
