    Post-Truth and Affective Publics’ Challenges to Social Ties

    Disinformation, Populism, Data-Driven Propaganda

    The acceleration of innovation in communication technology and the increasing commodification of personal data have combined with the already hyper-segmented offer of legacy media to throw news media ecologies across the globe in a state of flux. Through selective exposure, users are provided with infinite opportunities to reinforce their pre-existing attitudes and engage with the political process affectively, a phenomenon further compounded by new challenges to journalistic authority that accelerate already existing trends and shake traditional informational hierarchies to their cores. The resulting audience polarization in turn jeopardizes the possibility of a common citizenship, as users are effectively barred from cultivating shared patterns of representation of the social world.

    Digital Justice and criminal proceedings in France and the United Kingdom

    The impact of new technologies on fundamental rights in light of domestic and European laws

    Since the beginning of the pandemic and even shortly before, digital justice has been deployed on a large scale on both sides of the channel. If the advantages are real in many ways, the impact on fundamental rights should be questioned as far as the European cooperation is concerned with a special focus on France, England and Wales and their Criminal justice systems. In view of their symposium, the organisers would welcome proposals from academics, policy-makers legal practitioners (lawyers, judges, etc.) and opinion formers.

  • Call for papers - Geography

    Cinema, disasters and the Anthropocene

    What kind of challenges does the future hold? Geography can play an important clarifying role to reduce the complexity of (today’s) social, economic, political and technological reality, by presenting a much deeper vision of reality and at the same time offering us the means to navigate it. In the context of theoretical analysis and in the context of studies on the Geographies of the Anthropocene, this call aims to provide empirical and concrete insights into geographical research regarding its recent developments, with a specific look at the challenges of the future.

    Digital Religioscapes: Current Methodologies and Novelties in the analysis of sacr(aliz)ed spaces

    The study of ancient religions – their materiality and practices – was subject to enormous changes, over the past years. However, the digital humanities have yet to find a meaningful way to integrate the resulting qualitative data into existing digital infrastructures and correlate it with quantitative data. The session therefore aims to bring together experts working with different methods of gathering, modelling/visualising, presenting, and analysing data to discuss the diverse ways in which heterogeneous methods and tools can be usefully combined. Approaches that use mixed data (qualitative and quantitative), are just as welcome as the presentation and discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of various individual tools and applications.

    Between ethics and semiotics. Signs and nature in the Anthropocene era

    “Filosofi(e)Semiotiche” journal (Il Sileno Edizioni), volume 9, n. 1, 2022

    The Anthropocene, unlike other previous eras, is commonly recognized as the era in which the impact of human beings is most incisive in determining the dynamics of the climate and the planet in which we live. With this Call we intend, therefore, to highlight some aspects of the Anthropocene in order to suggest a rethinking of the relationship between human nature and the surrounding environment ; this will allow us to specify how ethics and semiotics can be used in a rethinking of these two categories, and, in general, of the link between language and nature, which inevitably involves the need to review our ways of “making world”.

    Italy and its former colonies: Cooperation, mobility, continuities, and criticism

    The SISSCO (Società Italiana per lo Studio della Storia Contemporanea) Research Seminar “Italy and the Post-colonial world” is currently organizing its second seminar, titled “Italy and its former colonies. Cooperation, mobility, continuities, and criticism”. The seminar focuses on the timeframe ranging from 1960 – the “year of Africa” but also the one in which the formal relationship between Italy and Somalia ended – to 1989, which marked the end of the polarized system that characterized the Cold War. However, we welcome also contributions informed bya long-term perspective embracing, for instance, post-WWII events and personal trajectories. In this way, we seek to foster multidisciplinary and transnational dialogues around the theme of the relationships that Italy established with the former colonies and with people migrating from those countries.

    Heading towards a new frontier?

    History on the Web, in films and TV series

    Over the last few years, we have been witnessing two phenomena which are concurrent and yet apparently in contrast with each other. On one side, there is evidence of a marginalisation of history, in the sense of a crisis of identity and social function, which extends to the very role of historians. On the other side, there is a huge interest in history among the general public in the consumption of cultural products with a historical focus. We invite all interested scholars to submit proposals that may contribute to a discussion about the effects of the popularization of history through products of widespread use.

    Alternative Cultural Globalization: from East Asia to Europe

    Without denying the contribution of the American model, which’s mastery in the field of pop culture has been emulated, the objective of this colloquium is to bring to light the alternative represented by East Asia, by spotlighting both the common features and the specificities of countries located in this geographical area, compared to Western countries. For example, if Hallyu was greatly inspired by the Japanese cultural industry, South Korea was nevertheless able to develop quite quickly its own strategies for the production and circulation of its products.

    Towards a good life society: when interdependencies confront atomism

    In 2018, the Forum's scientific symposium dealt with the collective definition of the well-living (or the good life, among other terms), the methods and uses of good life indicators, along with citizen participation and the contribution of research to the good life. Building on these achievements, the second edition of the scientific symposium aims to go a step further towards exploring how a paradigm shift in favor of the good life might be supported, by emphasizing the topic of interdependencies.

    Recasting subjects and subjectivities in the writing of history

    Strategies, spaces and conflicts in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries

    The Workshop “Recasting subjects and subjectivities in the writing of history: strategies, spaces and conflicts in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries” is organized by the PhD in Global History and Governance of the Scuola Superiore Meridionale. The event aims to offer a space of discussion for PhD students, researchers, and scholars who, in their investigations, focus on the centrality of subjects in creating spaces of action and mobilization inside the societal structures in which they moved, as well as in the global and local processes with which they interacted. Building on an understanding of history and historical processes as a continuously contested field, this Workshop will focus on how different subjects influenced and reshaped their own social, economic and legal conditions through individual or collective action.
