Ugolini (2013) ‘Spaghetti lengths in a bowl?’ Recovering narratives of not ‘belonging’ amongst the Italian Scots

Summary:

Building on earlier work (See Ugolini, 2006) this study by Ugolini (2013) provides an interesting account of how second generation Italian Scots attribute a sense of ‘not belonging’ to the alienation the Italian community in Scotland experienced during the Second World War. The study provides an intriguing insight into narratives of childhood, Ugolini (2013) argues that the incessant animosity meted out to the Italian community during wartime was underpinned by an earlier discourse centred on race. In another study Hopkins (2008) discusses contemporary aspects of race in the context of debates over differences between Scotland and elsewhere within the UK.
