After the War

This issue deals refers to the exact time when violents conflicts are supposed to end. Usually called «postwar period» and always perceived as problematic, this moment is an unachieved process: we know when it starts but we do not ever know when it really ends. We decided, hence, not to refer to a defined and limited notion («the postwar period»), but to an inquiry related to a momentum without aknowledged frontiers: to a «quality of time», would have said Machiavel. We do not wish to postulate from the outset, the autonomy of a field of study (a kind of «postwar studies»). This filed has yet to be defined and limited, even if in the past twenty years, we have seen lots and lots of works on the culture of war, its continuation and its abandonment after the end of the conflict. From the recurrent crystallizations that war produces, we would rather question about what happens at this very moment, considering justice and everyone's responsibilities. Beyond the interrogations coming from the cultural studies, we would also like to examine the inexpressible phenomenons the conflicts provokes, the creations of a narrative, or even the staging of the just past conflicts. And then, we will try to understand the necessity of oblivion in front of the effort of remembrance.

Jean-Louis Fournel, Matteo Palumbo
This special issue, which is intended as an advisory report, analyses the up-heavals brought about in Italian universities by the Covid-19 pandemic, both in educational relationships and in the impact of distance from the space which is usually a hub for university life and the transmission of knowledge.

Mots et gestes dans l'Italie de la Renaissance
Words and gestures in Early Modern Italy
This issue explores a little-studied aspect of works about the body: the interactions between the two semiotic systems of verbal language and gesture, an aspect of body language. In their interferences, from the 16th century onwards, a profound transformation of the social and individual functions of the "visibile parlare" took place

This book acknowledges that there can be no reflection on liberalism without the concept of freedom but that no concept of freedom can be included among the different forms of liberalism. The two words which constitute the subject of this investigation refer to empirical or conceptual realities and a priori different chronologies.
