Written from an interdisciplinary cultural migration studies perspective, the article understands violent extremism as a complex networked phenomenon. It makes an original contribution by highlighting the role of belonging in trajectories of radicalization and resilience, bringing sociological studies of radicalized violence and resilience to such violence into dialogue with a cosmopolitan literary framework including the works of other diasporic Somali background European writers such as Cristina Ali Farah and Igiaba Scego.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: radicalization to violent extremism, resilience, Nuruddin Farah, belonging, conviviality, fascism.</p> Vivian Gerrand Copyright (c) https://www.ajol.info/index.php/tvl/article/view/196358 Fri, 29 May 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Nuruddin Farah: A pas de deux across The World Republic of Letters https://www.ajol.info/index.php/tvl/article/view/196359 <p>Nuruddin Farah’s life and work is used in Pascale Casanova’s The World Republic of Letters to exemplify the challenges of the dispossessed writer on the periphery of the hierarchical, binary, and highly agonistic world literary system she describes. However, precisely because of his unique position on the Somali literary periphery of the African periphery, Farah’s work and career represent the practice of Casanova’s theory in advance of its formulation. The Somali writer’s negotiation of entry into the dominant world literary order since the publication of his first novel in 1970 suggests an implicit understanding of the literary system Casanova outlines only towards the end of the twentieth century. In other words, Farah does not derivatively illustrate the theory, but his career and novels preempt through practice the major insights of Casanova’s theory. Farah’s career, furthermore, suggests a wider polycentrism of influence than allowed in the hierarchical binarism of Casanova’s model. Finally, the postcolonial aesthetic of “teacherliness”, clearer in the late realism of Farah’s mature work, signals a fundamental rewriting, rather than a derivative renewal, of modernist aesthetic modes privileging technique of the major cities of the global north.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: Nuruddin Farah, Pascale Casanova, world systems, literary theory, postcolonial literature, translation.</p> F.
