Communication processes and Cultural Practices

Creative media are contexts, catalysts and cultural technologies, playing a pivotal role in activating and directing contemporary phenomena that take place in our society. Communication processes and Cultural Practices book series meet the perspective of observing the social reality starting from the role of media and of communication’s processes. Media, Communication and cultural processes, in fact, aims at being the publishing frame for editorial proposals, academic and with a strong attention to empirical research, that want to investigate contemporary phenomena looking at what happens concretely in our society and that involve individuals: as single person, group or community.

The research areas

Phenomenon, culture and subjectivity are the three main research points on media that guide the selection of the proposals. The starting point of the Communication processes and Cultural Practices book series’ perspective is that it is not possible to identify clear and neat borders with in these three social constructs and that the richness of the contributions is represented by the contamination, contact and dialog among them. Moreover, it is the way to guarantee a multidisciplinary glance to contribute  the “discover”, the proposition of new analysis, enable to contribute to the dialog theories and tools of contiguous disciplines.

The scheduling is based on direct proposals coming from the editorial board and/or external/internal call for proposals, previously approved by the board, according to the mission of the book series.

I media creativi si presentano come contesti, catalizzatori e tecnologie culturali, svolgendo un ruolo centrale nell’attivazione/direzione dei fenomeni contemporanei che nella società prendono forma. Osservare la realtà sociale a partire dal contributo dei media e della comunicazione è la prospettiva che caratterizza la collana Media, Comunicazione e Processi culturali che intende fare da cornice per le proposte editoriali, di tipo accademico e con una forte attenzione alla ricerca empirica, volte a indagare fenomeni della contemporaneità a partire da ciò che accade nella società e coinvolge direttamente l’individuo: come singolo, come gruppo e come comunità.

Le aree di ricerca

Fenomeno, cultura e soggetto sono i tre punti focali delle ricerche e degli studi sui media che trovano spazio all’interno della collana. Il principio di fondo è che la definizione dei margini di questi costrutti sia impossibile e che nei limen, nel contatto o intreccio, nella relazione tra di essi vi sia la ricchezza prospettica e interpretativa che possa garantire uno sguardo multidisciplinare e favorire la scoperta, la proposizione di analisi nuove, capaci di fare dialogare teorie e strumenti di discipline attigue.

Invia la tua proposta

La collana ospita due volumi per anno. La programmazione prende le mosse da proposte dirette del board editoriale e/o da call for proposal appositamente costruite e approvate dallo stesso, che rispettino la mission della collana e diano spazio anche a ricercatori/trici indipendenti, accademici/che, portatori/trici di sguardi innovatori nello studio dei processi culturali e comunicativi.

L’invio di proposte può avvenire inoltrando un breve abstract, se disponibile l’indice, e una breve bibliografia. L’abstract non deve superare le 800 parole e deve indicare in modo chiaro l’obiettivo della pubblicazione e gli elementi di originalità che la distinguono da contenuti già editi nel panorama nazionale e internazionale.

L’inoltro può avvenire per mail al seguente indirizzo: communication_culturalpractices@writeupbooks.com

È possibile sottoporre la proposta in inglese e in italiano.
