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.

Many thought Brexit would not come to pass, that Donald Trump could not be elected, experts, pollsters, and probability models told us so, down to the decimal point. An entire media apparatus that was increasingly certain came to produce instead confusion. The manufactured character of news becomes dramatically exposed, as well as the entertainment-driven nature of electoral politics that increasingly look like reality shows. The vacuum left behind is threatened to be filled with the rising tide of hate speech, hoaxes, and so-called fake news.

This special issue aims at exploring the encounter and intersection between fashion studies and media studies, with particular reference to visual and audiovisual products, e.g. cinema, television, advertising and digital media. We encourage scholars from the fields of both audiovisual media and fashion studies to explore this intriguing intersection and the new horizons of audiovisual fashion. We particularly welcome contributions that discuss how audiovisual studies and fashion studies can cross-fertilize each other and expand the theoretical framework of each approach.

In the past, in Italy, the “exposed”, also called foundlings, were the infants or young children abandoned by unknown parents to the care of the Church or of public services. Those exposed children are a powerful reminder of the wider condition of the human beings who for many years from birth are incapable of looking after themselves and are so “exposed”, vulnerable, totally open to all perils and even to death unless someone takes constant care of them.

The long-running debate on Post-humanism is now entering a new phase: after the analysis of technological imaginaries and 'frontier cases' that informed the field during the ‘90s, scholars’ attention is now progressively focusing on more common technological artefacts, social practices and socio-technological assemblages that seem to redefine the boundaries of what was traditionally conceived as “human”.

The contemporary mediascape is characterized by continuous and endless remediation flows that re-shape and hybridize the contents, the forms and the vehicles of visual-based media experience. In such a scenario, over the last years photography has gained a central role in negotiating between the need for innovation propelled by digital media and the persistence of its original nature and purposes.

The arrival of digital technologies was supposed to spell the end of the line for television, the most dominant medium of the last half of the twentieth century. However, the opposite has happened -- there is more television than ever before and, as Toby Miller recently put it, "people like it more than ever". As a result, many people have rushed to characterize what has become of the medium. This special issue is devoted to making sense of how television genres have changed and adapted in an era where more television is more abundant than ever.

Creative industries (an expression that replaces the traditional notion of “cultural industries” in present-day global economy) point at the persistence of gender imbalance in media organizations (as a European Community report has recently illustrated) and in professional contexts associated with them. This special issue of CS examines the many forms that gendered creativity assumes.

Over the last few decades, the idea that the narrative elaboration of moral issues is a breeding ground for the development of the ethical debate has encountered increasingly positive reception within the philosophical studies. This assumption has gathered consensus among different theoretical positions, endorsing the narrative thinking as a preferential way to our self-definition as human beings and moral subjects.
