    Las Humanidades y su estudio a través de los videojuegos, la gamificación  y las redes sociales: una introducción  /   Humanities and their study through video games, gamification and social networks: an introduction

     a cargo de / edited by Maria Betlem Castellà Pujols - Luciano Gallinari

    The Booklet contains the proceedings of a Workshop on Humanities, video games and social networks, organised in April 2017 by the two editors of the booklet at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. 
    It is a sort of third chapter in a series of initiatives dedicated by the Journal to the very stimulating relationship between History and these tools and methodologies for teaching and spreading it.
    It houses 4 articles dedicated to the world of the video games, which has been differently declined by the authors: Someone has focused on the teaching of the Middle Ages,  someone else on the teaching of History and Cultural Heritage. Another author has examined the case of a committed video game, in order to reflect on difficult issues such as terrorism and the relationship between the truth and the false media information.
    Two more texts have been dedicated to the Social Netwotks, and especially to Facebook: one of them, in relation to formal and informal learning; another essay, instead, focused on the relationship between the Medieval History and Facebook. The Booklet focused on the potential of gamification in teaching foreign languages and in the relationships between the components and the mechanics of gamification with the dynamic of the narrative 

  • Vol. 2/I n.s. (June 2018)

    The Booklet contains individual articles whose themes range from the public and private life of the Hierosolimitans of Corleone (Sicily) between the 14th and 15th centuries to two texts dedicated to the Cono Sur: the first, focused on Italian migrants in the Argentine city of Córdoba in the final decades of the 19th century and in the early decades of the 20th century; the other, instead, dwells on the presence of Italians and the Italian language in contemporary Chile. 
    A fourth essay is dedicated to the fascinating world of the Sardinian mines, rebuilt thanks to archival sources, with an interesting perspective that also observes them as important museums for cultural and tourist purposes.
    The booklet is closed by a text that has been dedicated to some interesting historiographic reflections aimed at highlighting the profound difference between the profession of the historian and that of the amateur, observed in the light of logic.

    Santi che viaggiano’. Mobilità e circolazione di culti religiosi nel Mediterraneo tra Medioevo ed Età Moderna / ‘Saints who travel'. Mobility and movement of religious cults in the Mediterranean between the Middle Ages and the Modern Age. A Cura di / Edited by Maria Giuseppina Meloni

    The booklet  houses six articles presented at the Ex nihilo Zero Conference of the European Academy of Religion (Bologna, 18-22 June 2017). From these essays it emerges how the Mediterranean, the centre of an intensive movement of men, goods and ideas, was also the medium for the circulation of cults and relics. There were significant cases both in Pisa where new worships developed between the High Middle Ages and the 13th Century, as a result of its maritime contacts; and in Sardinia which, due to its geographical position and historical events, was opened to the reception of new cults introduced by the powerful men of the time. The island itself, however, was also in some circumstances the exporter of relics and devotions. In addition, The Booklet examines also the strong connection with the sea of the cult of St. Nicholas and the translation of his relics from Myra to Bari.

    Scienze umane, dalla produzione di nuova conoscenza alla disseminazione e ritorno / Humanities, from production of new knowledge to dissemination and back.

     A cura di / Edited by Giovanni Sini

    The booklet  analyses different national and international experiences of circularity of the knowledge. Experiences that start, mostly but not only from the world of research, after they have produced new knowledge, for dissemination purposes. In some cases, a specific discourse on enhancement and the protection of cultural heritage is carried out. Theoretical/operational methodologies have been investigated on how to “go beyond” Humanities in general, thanks to disciplines such as Public History, Digital Humanities, the so-called new technologies and the Virtual Reality. The proposed experiences come from both the academic and entrepreneurial fields with different users: generic, academic and educational.

    Auctoritas e istituzioni (XII-XV secc.) / Auctoritas and Institutions (12th - 15th centuries)

    a cura di  / edited by Esther Martí Sentañes - Karen Stöber

    La Auctoritas supone un tema clave en la interpretación de la vida medieval. La autoridad en la Edad Media se tenía que negociar constantemente entre los poderes seculares y eclesiásticos que determinaban, de una manera u otra, casi cada aspecto de la vida en la Europa medieval. La Auctoritas además estaba presente en la más profunda estructura de la sociedad, desde el mundo rural hasta la corte real o papal. Por lo tanto, entender la dinámica de la autoridad resulta fundamental para nuestra comprensión de las sociedades medievales, y por extensión, de las raíces de nuestra propia sociedad.

    En todos los ámbitos de los estudios medievales es posible hallar referencias a la autoridad, por ello, para entender mejor las dinámicas de esta época, es oportuno considerar este argumento desde múltiples perspectivas.
