In recent years habits have been at the center of the international philosophical debate, both in the perspective of historical as well as in theoretical and empirical research. Since habits may be thought to involve monotony and lack of creativity, how can habits be reconciled with aesthetics? The present issue of “Aisthesis” aims to discuss this question by focusing on the connection between habits and the aesthetic life.

Drammaturgia is a new series of the same title journal published by Salerno Editore until 2003. Issued once a year, it examines the intercultural dynamics of theatre and the differences between literary structures of the discipline and its specific contexts and processes of production and fruition.
Directed by Siro Ferrone with Stefano Mazzoni (until 2022) and Renzo Guardenti (from 2023), the new series of the annual journal «Drammaturgia» is the continuation of the prestigious multidisciplinary publication of the same name founded in 1994 by Ferrone and published with rigorous punctuality until 2003 by Salerno Editrice: ten monographic issues and eight notebooks, for a total of more than 4500 pages. The new series is published by Firenze University Press, both in print and in electronic form. The contents of «Drammaturgia» (original essays, documents, texts, bibliographic repertories, ongoing research) are available in open access. The journal investigates a long-term diachronic arc – from the ancient world to today – in a historical-philological perspective attentive to intercultural dynamics and to the differences between the literary crystallizations of the theatre and the specific contexts and processes of production, staging and consumption of live theatre. In addition to the annual issue of the journal, reviews and commentary on current topics are published quarterly since 2001 on the website «Drammaturgia» (http://drammaturgia.fupress.net). A close and fruitful scientific collaboration is established between «Drammaturgia» and AMAtI, Multimedia Archive of Italian Actors (http://amati.fupress.net).

Photo by Nothing Ahead from PexelsNEW CALL FOR PAPERS: VOL. 14 - 2025The Politics of Book History: Then and Now
Edited by Zachary Lesser and Georgina WilsonVolume 14 of the Journal of Early Modern Studies intervenes at a crucial moment when book historians are increasingly alert to the political structures which have shaped the emergence of our field. As with any field of study, the initial focuses of book history reflected the priorities of scholars at a given moment, and generated intellectual models with specific assumptions and hierarchies built into their scope. Recent work from feminist, critical race, postcolonial, and queer perspectives has critiqued the history of the discipline for its emphasis on canonical authors, its Anglo- or Euro-centric geography, and its implied beliefs about the book trade, readership, and literacy, among other things....

Edited by Antonio Castillo Gómez and Miguel MartínezVolume 13 of the Journal of Early Modern Studies seeks to interrogate how common men and women used different modes of writing to keep, shape, and contest social memory in the early modern world. Studies on popular senses of the past, such as Andy Wood’s, have brought to light the complex interrelation between custom, collective memory, and social struggle. A usable past was key in conflicts over economic and political resources in the present. As the systematic regulation of access to reading and writing (Guillory), literacy was the basis for persistent forms of exclusion—particularly when gender and racial regimes of inequality intersected with class. But literacy was also a site of contestation.... Read More PDF

On March 7, 2022, Amnesty International launched an alarm regarding the worldwide “grave erosion of rights” and “global assault on women’s and girls’ dignity” in the wake of events in Afghanistan, Ethiopia, the US, Turkey, and Iran in 2021 and 2022. The UN Working Group has expressed similar concerns, noting that economic crisis, austerity measures, and cultural and religious conservatism has brought about a backlash against gender equality. This backlash has a major impact on people living in poverty and with lower socio-economic status, LGBTIQ+ communities, migrants, ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities, exacerbating pre-existing discrimination. To promote a better awareness of current phenomena, LEA 12 (2023) proposes to investigate gender relationships from the perspective of literary, linguistic, and philological studies.

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.

SPECIAL ISSUE: 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. ...
