    Framing the postdigital childhood

    From families practises and knowledge to the educational response

    Large datasets formed upon the children’s exposure to social media, AI-powered toys and interfaces embed bias and injustice (Barassi, 2020). The data captured from toddlers overexposure to videos watched on social media platforms, later monetized in the commercial recommendations made to parents; images extracted because of the practices of sharenting, later modified through AI tools; or acts of cyberbullying on adolescents using pictures from their infancy, are just some of the unpredictable ways into which the postdigital life of children becomes risk and harm on them (Pangrazio & Sefton-Green, 2020). Childhood is nowadays being a subject of bio-codification, including genomics, neural and cognitive predictions blended with computational big data studies (Lupton & Williamson, 2017). Therefore, children’s rights to their identity and to a safe place to grow up are being violated (Rivera-Vargas et al., 2023)... read more....

    Cambio. An International Journal on Social Change

    Cambio. Rivista sulle trasformazioni sociali is a peer-reviewed and open-access electronic journal now in its nineth year. It aims to promote theoretical and analytical debates at international level arising from contributions focused on processes of change that are affecting present-day individuals and societies at both local and global levels. CAMBIO's main inspiration is sociological, but it has deliberately chosen to place itself in the open field of the social sciences, convinced that there can be no real depth of specialization without acceptance of the challenge of complexity, a challenge that must be faced in any attempt to interpret, understand, explain or comprehend.

  • Storia delle Donne

    La rivista Storia delle Donne nasce dalla collaborazione di studiose specialiste di epoche e discipline diverse –formate in scuole di varie università italiane– e si propone come pubblicazione ad alto contenuto scientifico. SdD ha periodicità annuale, i numeri sono tematici in ragione della scelta redazionale di presentare ciascun fascicolo come un unicum perché meglio siano colte, messe a fuoco e sviluppate l’evidenza e l’importanza dell’argomento proposto. La sezione «Oltre il tema» ospita articoli non attinenti al tema del monografico.  L’idea che è a fondamento del progetto SdD guarda al nesso tra storia e politica delle donne, ma accorda priorità a quello fra storia e politiche per le donne e con le donne; questa è una delle ragioni per cui la scelta del tema dei fascicoli è dettata dai processi in atto e dalle urgenze che la contemporaneità propone. Il tema viene sviluppato nella sezione «Presente» da contributi che lo illustrano con incroci di approccio e metodo volutamente pluridisciplinari, senza che questo identifichi SdD con l’interdisciplinarietà degli Women’s Studies. Nella sezione «Passato» i saggi restituiscono lo spessore storico e diacronico nella longue durée che si snoda dalle civiltà antiche fino al Novecento. Molto accentuata la proiezione internazionale della rivista, sia nei temi che nelle autrici e autori, gli articoli sono quindi pubblicati in diverse lingue: oltre all’italiano naturalmente, anche in francese, inglese, spagnolo, portoghese.

    Tutti i testi pubblicati in SdD sono valutati, secondo le modalità del doppio cieco (double blind peer review), da due referees individuati nell’ambito di un’ampia cerchia di specialiste e specialisti.

  • Ri-Vista. Research for landscape architecture

    The portrait of an open space (in the complexity)
    Edited by Emanuela Morelli, Jordi Bellmunt, Marco Cillis

    Call for Papers

    Photo: Igor Mukhin, Gorkogo Park, Mosca 2006

    Considered during the second half of the 19th century as a void lacking peculiarities, scarcely recognised and as a suspended entity ‘waiting for’, today open space has returned to the forefront of the design scene. As the quintessential place for rights and for promoting social equity and ecological democracy, open space is able to generate different relationships, be they biotic, functional, perceptual, temporal, social or cultural. According to Lawrence Halprin, the combination of open spaces establishes a sort of choreography within which movement and life take place. For Georges Perec, space is a doubt that must be constantly identified and shown, definable where our gaze stops, on which our sight stumbles: “living is passing from one space to another trying to not get hurt too much”. For Martin Heidegger, if the Open (das Offene) is synonymous with the boundless,... Read More...

  • Webbia

    The Journal of Plant Taxonomy and Geography (Webbia) is a full open access peer-reviewed journal on Plant Systematics, Nomenclature, Phylogeny, Phytogeography contributions deal with the Vascular Plants.  It aims to allow research in botanical topics such as Taxonomy, Nomenclature, Systematics, Molecular Phylogeny, Conservation, Biogeography, and History fo Botany and Botanical collections.  

    A first assessment after returning home: 2020-2021

    Two years have passed since Webbia returned home with Firenze University Press and it is time to take stock of the state of the art in which she finds herself. During the two-year period 2020-2021 and in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, Webbia managed to maintain an excellent editorial level by publishing a total of 49 articles, 1 review, 2 comments and 1 point of view. Overall, 48 new taxa (including species, hybrids, series) and 16 nomenclatural updates (including new combinations and status nomenclatural, new synonyms, new names) were published.
    All this was possible thanks to the sensitivity and interest of an audience of scholars who gave breath and increased the global credibility of the journal by believing in Webbia's role as a communication tool in the international botanical community in the field of plant taxonomy. Thanks to all those who have allowed this success. Here a special thanks goes to all the Associated Editors who have accepted to join the journal with their prestigious credentials, as well as to those who have directly worked in the review process by making their professionalism and their time available to Webbia. A special thanks goes to the FUP managerial staff who followed me in the transfer from a previous publishing house to a new editorial experience, as well as to the one dedicated to copyediting without which nothing would have been possible with excellent editorial outcomes.

    On these premises and on the results achieved in these two years with FUP, Webbia is preparing to face a new year with ambitious actions including the beginning of the publication of "special issues" dedicated to monographic contributions of international importance, in the hope of consolidating and stimulating its growth. We believe in this project to be shared with those who have supported us until now and will want to do it in the future, remembering Webbia as one of the first European journals in Plant taxonomy that will soon see its 120th anniversary from its foundation (1905- 2025).

    Thank you all, and let me say ... Ad Maiora!
