Abstract

In migration studies about literature, food usually signals the preservation of a migrant’s identity in his/her new country. Considered as a transitional condition, the very travel of migration itself is instead overlooked and perceived as a non-place. Consequently, also all aspects of migration related to feeding are mostly ignored. In my paper, I will argue that spaces of transit are heterotopic spaces rather than non-places. In these spaces, the lack of food, or its being often a ‘leftover’, is a key fact to understand the representation of the commerce of migrant bodies.
