Summary

Glocal Narratives of Resilience investigates contemporary approaches to resilience through the analyses of novels, memoirs, videogames, films, graphic fiction, and other cultural mediums. Through the close reading of works by Thomas King, Emma Donoghue, Ruth Ozeki, Rafael Chirbes, Almudena Grandes, Germán Gullón, Belén Gopegui, Luis García-Jambrina, Javier Cercas, Madeleine Thien, Rawi Hage, and Kim Thúy, among others, the essays brought together in this collection discuss representations of resilience linked to the environment, cultural memory, Indigeneity, and the various kinds of traumatic violence suffered by subjects of precarity such as women, children, refugees, the homeless, the victims of civil wars and dictatorships, or the Western middle-class in times of financial crisis.
