Call for papers: Global Social Science

Edited by Mauro Di Meglio (University of Naples L’Orientale) and Massimo Pendenza (University of Salerno). This Call for Papers is addressed to all those scholars interested in exploring, on (meta)theoretical and/or empirical grounds, the implications of conducting research in a “global” perspective, drawing in case inspiration from these streams of critique.

Call for papers: WATER SOCIALISATION – How climate, technologies and privatisation are changing the hydro-balances of society

Special Issue of Rassegna Italiana di Sociologia, edited by Giorgio Osti (Università degli Studi di Trieste).

Water socialisation – the pact for a rational and fair water sharing – has been weakened in temperate, developed countries. The capacity to store great quantities of water, to transport it over long distances, and the progress in the fields of depuration, filtering, irrigation and channelling had ensured a relatively peaceful situation among users. Such a balance has been easier in those places where water flows are more regular and public agencies are best equipped to manage all water-related services. Industrialisation of water flows (dense technological treatment of waters in all their cycle, increased scale of water supply facilities, water customisation) ensured the balance between shared access and intense use of water.

Call for papers: FEMINISM. Historical Legacies and Current Challenges

Special Issue of Rassegna Italiana di Sociologia, edited by Rossella Ghigi (University of Bologna) and Catherine Rottenberg (Ben-Gurion University of the Negev).

Feminism, conceived as both a political movement and a theoretical perspective, is currently facing new challenges across the globe. On the one hand, its goals have been partly incorporated as part of institutional governance in Western democracies. Equality and attempts to eradicate discrimination have, today, become crucial aspects of many international and national agendas. This has meant, according to some scholars, that feminism has been appropriated by so-called gender mainstreaming, while feminist knowledge has been converted into de-politicized technical expertise (Mukhopadhyay 2004; De Jong and Kimm 2017).
