Title: Marginalia on the Idea of Boundary and the Discourse on Identity in Iran
Authors: Scarcia Amoretti, Bianca Maria
Keywords: Frontier
Sayyids

Abstract: The paper focuses on the theme of Iran and the frontier through five interconnected conceptual lenses, namely the broad notions of identity and identifications, the dyad Muslim/Persian and its relation with the third key denomination of ‘Arab’, the acculturative space of language, the meaningful role of the Ahl al-bayt and the Sayyids, and, finally, the meaningful polysemic place of waṭan, whose Western translation as ‘homeland’ notoriously posits several problems. More in general, a critical treatment of the all-seasons contrast between ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’ marks the whole discussion.
