    Digitalisation and creation of alternative monetary and financial spaces

    This workshop proposes to explore the intersection between digitalisation and alternative monetary spaces developed in response to the sustainable development objectives. The Covid 19 pandemic has accentuated the challenges posed by digitalisation and highlighted its contradictory characteristics. On the one hand, the phenomenon allows, thanks to its technical potential, the valorization of local initiatives; on the other hand, it can favor forms of dehumanization and predation, likely to undermine the collective trust on which these spaces are based. The workshop proposed to address the contradictory nature of digitalisation processes from the perspective of their potential to strenghten and/or challenge economic and social cohesion.

    Cultural and market mediations: dangerous digital liaisons?

    The continuous diffusion of digital technology leads to new cultural and market mediations through new media to capture and enhance the attention of the public (Citton, 2014). In the perspective of exploratory conventions, and innovations, the axes developed here intend to think about the novel forms, which guide the concordances as oppositions between the designers, the actors and the receivers of these digital projections. This call for paper is dedicated to understanding and developing interdisciplinary cultural and market mediations approaches. It aims at understanding their dangerous digital liaisons through online advertising and ethics, through the prism of communication and marketing dangerous digital creation, and dangerous digital staging of the territory.

    Confronting the Crisis of Expertise: Historical Roots and Current Challenges

    In the post-Covid-19 world, the problems already experienced by democracies with regards to social divisions and diminishing trust in public institutions are exacerbated by a growing epistemic crisis concerning the simultaneous need and contestation of expertise for public policy purposes. The existence of uncertain statistical data, the search for past models in dealing with hidden enemies, the public attempts to translate scientific knowledge and to make sense of decision-making processes, all point to a persistent need for advanced skills for working with governance data and discourses.       Our course enhances participants’ skills in analyzing the incorporation of techno and scientific knowledge into public governance and discourses. The summer school seeks to provide the tools and categories to critically assess systemic responses in times of both contested expertise and scientificization of politics.

    Race and Capitalism

    There has been a recent resurgence of debates about “racial capitalism,” and, more broadly, a revival of the conjunction of anti-racist and anti-capitalist critiques. This event will bring together four preeminent scholars whose work engages the question of how processes of racialization have shaped capitalist social orders both in Europe and transnationally, and how capitalist social structures have, in turn, shaped processes of racialization.

    3rd International Conference on Digital, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Financing

    Digitalization enables the emergence of new entrepreneurs who, unlike their predecessors, can use digital technologies and online communities and are able to manage the key processes needed to create/launch a new venture moving from idea generation and opportunity recognition, to intellectual property protection, production, marketing and distribution. Entrepreneurship research in the digital economy also needs to be expanded to include literature from other disciplines such as political science, information systems and industrial organization. We invite contributions that will help to better assess, analyze, and theorize how digital innovations emerge and create value, how these innovations affect the structuring of markets and business models, how to implement and finance them.

    Gender and education amid Covid-19

    Impacts, responses, and prospects

Furthermore, it explores the prospects which may be unlocked for future professionals through learning different skills and values which foster equal opportunities for both genders in leadership and in the labour market, eventually and hopefully resulting in an equitable, unbiased, and fair labour culture for all.

    Contending Representations: Questioning Republicanism in Early Modern Genoa (1559-1684)

    In the past thirty years, several studies have been devoted to the political and cultural flowering of the republic of Genoa during the so-called ‘siglo de los Genoveses’, between 1528 and 1630, when Genoa became the hub of European trade and an important epicenter of artistic and literary production. Yet little attention has been granted to the cultural and economic crisis that followed or to how Genoese republican state power was represented during the long seventeenth century, especially in relation to neighbouring polities. To address this gap, the conference will explore how the Genoese Republic shaped its political image between 1559 – the year of the publication of Oberto Foglietta’s Delle cose della repubblica di Genova – and 1684, when Genoa was bombed by the French. We intend to address questions such as how did Genoese politicians and men of letters represent their homeland? How was Genoa represented by the Genoese community in Spain or in the Low Countries? How was its political system conceived by other Italian and non-Italian political writers? And how did prevailing depictions of absolutism influence republican rhetoric?
