The call for papers are listed here.


Since 2013, the traditional monographic section of each issue of Comunicazioni Sociali. Journal of Media, Performing Arts and Cultural Studies 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.

CS welcomes contributions of a length between 4,000 and 5,000 words (35,000 characters maximum) pertaining to the following fields:

  • Media Anthropology
  • Performing Arts
