    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.

    The environment of history

    Diacronie. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea

    The environment of history is a space in the journal “Diacronie. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea” intended to reflect in a historical perspective on one of the most characterizing themes of recent years, the environmental issue. In this space we wish to host contributions that approach environmental history from a wide spectrum of interpretations. We welcome approaches based on its most classical meaning, as a historical discipline that investigates the relationship between humans and the environment and combines different disciplinary fields, and approaches that foreground new themes, scales of analysis and methodologies.

    Rethinking Liberal Europe

    Ideas of Europe and Notions of Freedom between 1848 and 1945

    The aim of this conference is to shed new light on the ways in which concepts of freedom and ideas of Europe have interreacted between 1848 and 1945. While recent research into the history of European ideas for this period has focused on anti-liberal thinking, we emphasise that in the era of nationalism the idea of a Europe founded on freedom played an important role in the political and cultural debates. In doing so, we also want to rethink the link between Europe and liberal democracy in general as well as analyse its political implications for current debates. Scholars interested in participating are invited to consider their research with regards to how ideas of and discourses about freedom, however understood, (re)shaped notions such as “Europe”, “European”, “European civilization” etc. within historical and philosophical works, novels, works of art, treatises, speeches, propaganda material, and so on.

    Levantine Sociabilities in Europe in Giacomo Casanova’s time

    Spies, Impostors, Courtesans and Men of Culture

    In the eighteenth century, intrigue, libertinage and criminality changed the social norms of politeness and education thereby creating nonconformist social behaviours. An explicit, but certainly not unique, manifestation of these new trends is represented by the city of Venice and its adventurer par excellence, Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798). Ecclesiastic, writer, soldier, spy, alchemist, gambler and diplomat, he was engaged in a network of social relationships which are documented in his Histoire de ma vie (History of my Life), one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life during the eighteenth century. Like London, Paris and Vienna, Venice became a centre of social mobility, geographically located as the threshold of the Levant.

    Arabists and Hebraists (18th - 20th century)

    Hamsa Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies

    Looking for new contributions about the theme within the universe of Arabic and Hebraic studies, the next volume of HAMSA will be dedicated to the topic Arabists and Hebraists (18th -20th century). It is intended to summon up Arabists and Hebraists whose activity was developed inside or outside the Academy, also encompassing those who work in a solitary way or in non-traditional more and less ephemeral groups, or alternative networks. The chronological range extends from the 18th to the 20th century, allowing the inclusion of the beginning of modern Arabic and Hebraic studies, in Europe, Middle East and new American states, as also others less obvious regions of the world.

    Las Vanguardistas: Spanish Women Poets in Transnational Contexts (1920–1975)

    Spanish avant-garde poetry has traditionally been associated with the “Generation of 1927”, a group of male poets that has dominated critical discussions of literary history for almost a century. Studies that have embraced the generational model have often considered the Spanish avant-garde either as a unique national phenomenon or as an imitation of foreign literary models. This special issue challenges these views by considering women’s participation in avant-garde circles in and beyond Spain and placing the Spanish avant-garde in a transnational context.

    The glocalization of technocultures

    Journal “Glocalism Journal of Culture, Politics and Innovation”

    On the basis of examples informedby empirical material, this issue of Glocalism will re-examine the forms of technoculture(s) in the contextof globalization, their dynamics of glocalization and the ambivalent logics of the pressure to globalize despite localconstraints, the complex interactions between culture and technology, in a series of contexts with varying depths ofdigitalization of culture. This approach aims at locating at the forefront of the reflection the “local” forms and forces, particularly culturalones, that were previously questioned essentially from point of view of the globalization of Western technocultures. It will also nourish the debate on the consistency of the contested term “technoculture” and assess the relevanceof an approach in terms of glocalization.
