Examining the treatment of the body in migration literature in La fila india (2013) by Antonio Ortuño and Ciudad berraca (2018) by Rodrigo Ramos Bañados is the purpose of the following paper. I will use the concept of corpographèse (corpography) as an inscription of the body as meaning, and above all the projection on the racialized body of the political and social dysfunctions of Mexico and Chile. Globalization stimulates migratory flows while denaturing migrant bodies. Violence applied to the migrant body finds a correlate in the rescue of the testimony that the literary text operates. Stateless, the migrant subject can recover his or her place in history and territory as well as acquire a double belonging through the materiality of writing.
