Call for papers

Permanent CFP

Since 2013, the traditional monographic section of each issue of Comunicazioni Sociali has been supplemented by a miscellaneous section. The call for papers for the miscellaneous section is always open. Contributions will undergo the same double-blind peer-reviewing process of the monographic section. Since its inception, CS has been contributing on key debates of studies on theatre, cinema, radio, television, journalism, advertising and digital media. The journal has promoted a rigorous reflection on theory, history and critical analysis of media, communications and performance arts. It continues to be a fundamental voice within the debate on the more recent and controversial questions of communication (from ethics to anthropological design) drawing on theoretical reflection and historical analysis, as well as from the proceedings of empirical research.

Playing inclusion. The performing arts in the time of migrations: thinking, creating and acting inclusion

This issue focuses on the artistic, social and political resources invested by the performative arts into socio-cultural inclusion, aimed at facilitating collective processes of dealing actively with the complexities generated by the recent migration trends.

Issues

Power, Multidirectionality and Contingengy. Political Struggles over Representation,Decision-Making and Technology

Using different starting and entry points (based, inter alia, on journalism studies, organizational communication, game studies, discourse theory, visual communication), the collection of articles included in this special issue sheds light on the logics of political struggle. In particular, this special issue allows reflecting on the distinction between struggles over and struggles through, very much in line with Plekhanov’s distinction between the means and aims of political struggle, and his argumentation for the alignment of both in socialist strategy.
