• Aisthesis. Pratiche, linguaggi e saperi dell’estetico

    What landscape for the green economy?

    Landscape is not something merely ‘natural’. Alongside its material, orographic and morphological components, the landscape is also shaped as an anthropic product, the outcome of an articulated interaction involving settlement needs, urban development, resource exploitation, productive activities, and, more recently, environmental constraints, territorial valorisation, and attention (more or less marked) to biodiversity. These different practices often present instances that are not only difficult to harmonise, but sometimes distinctly conflicting and irreconcilable... read more...

    Founded in 2008 by Fabrizio Desideri and Giovanni Matteucci, «Aisthesis. Pratiche, linguaggi e saperi dell’estetico» is a peer-reviewed Open Access Journal whose focal aim is to promote interdisciplinary and transcultural research and debate in Aesthetics and the arts. Transcending traditional subject boundaries and understanding the notion of "aesthetic" as a pervasive component of human cultures and life forms, Aisthesis innovatively integrates a major focus on the intersection between aesthetics and the contemporary sciences (biology, psychology, neurosciences) with an in-depth interest in the history of the discipline, its leading classics and great metaphysical questions.

    Call for Paper CONTESTI  2 | 2024


    Edited by Giulio Giovannoni, Paola Briata, Giuseppina Forte, Silvia Ross

    Submission deadline September 30, 2024

    Planning stems from multi-actor, interactive and negotiating processes (Crosta 1998, Forester 1982), which take place through discursive practices and are strongly conditioned by the distribution of power. In these processes, the planner is invested with a dual role, at once technical and political, and has to mediate between the interests and demands of different groups and stakeholders. Cross-contamination of urban planning/design and anthropological urban approaches makes it possible to reduce the distortions arising from the unequal distribution of power and information by leveraging the cultural and symbolic factors of space production. Anthropological urbanism serves the cause of spatial justice and ethically responsible planning (Cranz 2016, Bech-Danielsen, Landsverk 2022).
    This issue of CONTESTI aims to take stock of the debate and promote theoretical reflection on the interdisciplinary contamination between urban planning and urban anthropology, and to illustrate some recent design and planning experiences marked by these kinds of approaches. Possible topics to be covered, non-exclusively, may include the following: 1) Urban anthropology and the discursive construction of urban policies; 2) Anthropological urbanism, stigma and symbolic justice; 3) Urbanism and anthropology of non-places, public housing estates, Arrival cities and camps for migrants and refugees, and the suburbs; 4) Visual anthropology and planning; 5) Anthropological urbanism and social conflict; 6) Open source urbanism and hybrid physical/virtual spaces of engagement.

    ISSN 1123-7023 (online)

    CROMOHS is a peer-reviewed, open-access electronic history journal published in English, and over the last two decades has established a solid reputation for scholarly rigour. With a marked international outlook, it aims to encourage methodological debate arising from original and creative dialogue between scholarly traditions, and to promote innovative approaches to archival research. CROMOHS acts as a focal point and forum for challenging and fresh scholarship on fourteenth- to nineteenth-century intellectual, social and cultural history in a global perspective. It seeks to move beyond a strictly regional and Eurocentric approach, with a preferential view towards histories of transcultural contacts and connections. Articles relating to Muslim societies (fourteenth-nineteenth centuries) are most welcome. More generally, CROMOHS strongly encourages contributions engaging with extra-European cultures and societies. CROMOHS invites theoretically informed work from a range of historical, cultural and social domains that interrogate cross-cultural and connected histories, intersecting the history of knowledge, emotions, religious beliefs, ethnography, cartography, the environment, material culture and the arts.

    Philosophy of the Sensus Communis. The Public, the Individual, the Cultural Practices

    Edited by Andrea Gatti

    Maurice Ashley-Cooper; Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 3rd Earl of Shaftesburyby John Closterman (died 1711) | (photo Wikimedia)

    The idea of the sensus communis is something of a crossroads for many cultural issues and practices in eighteenth-century Europe. It was at the heart of aesthetic, moral, political, religious, educational and legal concerns. Conceived as an inner sensibility or a sense of belonging to a community under the aegis of a set of common values, the sensus communis was one of the main themes of the investigations into human nature of 18th century authors such as Shaftesbury, Voltaire, Vico, Hume, Kant, Herder and others. At the same time, it inspired a whole series of cultural operations that referred to the idea of a collective taste that cultural operators sought to encounter, stimulate and educate. From this perspective, the idea of the sensus communis not only further defines the modern idea of the individual, but also sheds light on the heterogeneous genres and new cultural practices that emerged in the eighteenth century, on the then dominant notions of audience and ‘cultural industry’, and on the emergence of an unprecedented philosophy of the ‘spectator’.

    The deadline for submissions is 31 December 2024.

    «Diciottesimo Secolo» is the official international open access journal of the Società Italiana di Studi sul Secolo XVIII (SISSD). It is committed to hosting critical debates covering a full range of eighteenth century subjects: from literature to history, from law to religion, from philosophy to science, from anthropology to the fine arts, from linguistics to ethics, from theatre to music. It is also intended as an instrument for providing updated information about current Italian research in eighteenth-century studies. Published annually and double blind peer reviewed, the journal is divided into three sections: “Essays”, “Critical Notes” and “Reviews”.

    "In Italy, every square metre of earth we excavate contains the remains of the body and the actions of a man who existed centuries ago. This land is therefore sacred. What gives us the right to forget that fact?" (Paolo Zermani)

    Firenze Architettura is an international journal dedicated to theoretical and applied research in the field of architectural design, which serves as a critical observatory aimed at refounding and conveying the discipline of design by countering development models that disregard the core values of the European city. Each issue offers a space for reflection concerning a specific topic, which is then explored indepth in papers that investigate the design rationale while focusing on contemporary research. The journal also welcomes essays, in the form of editorials, by eminent personalities of European culture who, from an extra-disciplinary point of view, offer a broader understanding of the topic. Over time, Firenze Architettura has become an esteemed tool for the study and dissemination of the culture of architectural design and has been rated by ANVUR as a Class A scientific journal since 2015.

    Material Space and Literary Production in Early Modern Europe

    Edited by Chloe Fairbanks and Catherine Jenkinson

    Volume 16 (2026) of the Journal of Early Modern Studies will re-examine the relationship between material space and literary production in early modern Europe. Literary production is here defined as including prose, sermons, poetry, drama, letters, and diaries, written for both private and/or public audiences. In its reconsideration of both space and place, broadly defined, the volume will offer a reassessment of both late medieval and early modern writings about and within space and will offer fresh ways of understanding the complex relationship between individuals and their environments (material, imagined, or otherwise) during this period. The editors particularly welcome submissions which engage with subversion and the deconstruction of formal and informal power structures, and encourage submissions from scholars of underrepresented backgrounds. Contributions that examine the literary output or spaces traditionally excluded from modern scholarship are also encouraged.....  Read More  PDF

    The advent of electricity and its instrumental applications has given new impetus to the relationship between music and technology. The constant and progressive spread of electronics and digital tools has increasingly influenced the executive and creative areas of music, aligning the technological dimension always present in its evolutionary path to the demands of contemporaneity. Hybridizations between different genres have been developed. Expressive languages and horizons of scientific and technological research, unthinkable only a few decades earlier, have opened up.
    Music/Technology attempts to explore this dimension, in the awareness that the relations between the musical world and the technological one are not linear but rather characterized by chronological and environmental mismatches. With the aim of making explicit - as we had already underlined in our first issue - the awareness that shows «how new categories of musical thought could be created thanks to the invention of devices and instruments whose impact on our ways of learning and conceiving sound phenomenon was decisive» (Hugues Dufourt). The ratio line present in the title of the magazine therefore seeks to express precisely this, in all the values that one wishes to assign to that line. Ultimately, the urgency is to understand the creative, productive and realization mechanisms in which music fits thanks to its electrical and digital developments, while undertaking a reflection that allows us not to be overwhelmed by them.

    The annual journal Opus Incertum dedicates the 2025 issue to architectural history and the challenges of interdisciplinarity. It is nearly impossible to define the discipline of architectural history in simple terms today. The field has become pluralistic and fragmented, marked by multi-, trans-, inter-, and even anti- disciplinarity (Mowitt, 1997). The adoption of various methods from the humanities and social sciences and the introduction of cultural approaches (e.g., visual studies, literary studies, intermediality, etc.) have resulted in extraordinary diversity in the writing of architectural history. Consequently, scholars from various disciplines now operating under the banner of architectural history often have little in common (Timbert, 2021). more.

    : Abitare il territorio al tempo del Covid / Living the territories in the time of Covid

    Questo numero speciale della Rivista “Scienze del territorio”, pubblicato in italiano nel 2020, è dedicato a una riflessione ‘territorialista’ finalizzata ad approfondire come la pandemia in corso, e le questioni che essa sta evidenziando, possano essere utilmente affrontate riscoprendo le potenzialità di un diverso modo di pensare, progettare, agire e quindi, complessivamente, “abitare” i nostri territori. Tanto più che CoViD-19 – ci segnalano gli scienziati – non si presenta come un evento isolato, ma come uno dei molti episodi inscritti nella cornice della crisi ambientale globale. La pandemia ha fatto emergere con straordinaria evidenza limiti e fragilità del rapporto prevalente tra economie e territori, riconducibili sempre più chiaramente a quel processo di “accumulazione per spoliazione” reso possibile dalla tecnologia, dalla logistica e dalla finanziarizzazione globali. ...

    Studi irlandesi. A Journal of Irish Studies aims to promote and contribute to the interdisciplinary debate on themes and research issues pertaining to every aspect of Irish culture, in order to create a place for an international debate and high quality research on Irish literary studies, history, cultural perspectives and linguistic inquiry, from the Romantic Era to the present age. The aim of the publication is, therefore, to stimulate discussion on problematic aspects of Irish culture: history, politics, social environment, as well as literature and art. The journal will publish previously unpublished works, both in the original language and Italian translation, as well as interviews, reviews, reports and bibliographies of interest for Irish culture scholars. The journal will also publish research in progress focussing on recent developments rather than consolidated theories and hypotheses and openings rather than conclusions, and will encourage young scholars to publish the results of their - completed or partial - research, and take part in the international debate, both in traditional formats and digital media.
