Sažetak

Mediterranneanism – as an “other heading” of Europe at its southern
peripheries, including and fending off the other (according to Tomislav
Zelic) – is a new topic in contemporary literary works on refugees. This
essay draws some lines of research, focussing on the Mediterranean
Sea as a narrated passage between the continents, an area of a clash
of cultures, a heterotopic space, and a political hotspot of flight tragedies
in Bodo Kirchhoff’s “Novelle“ Widerfahrnis (2016) and Mathias
Énard’s novels “Erzähl ihnen von Schlachten, Königen und Elefanten”
(2010/2013) and “Straße der Diebe” (2012/2013).
