The Research Group ‘RECEPT. Research on the Cultural Entanglements of the Present Times‘ intends to create a project of interdisciplinary nature that aims to investigate the intertwining of contemporary culture, focusing on the forms of communication and conflict within cultural production and relations between local and global: this in the belief that only a combined and multiple study perspective makes possible a critical-historiographical discourse on contemporaneity.
The project is divided in two research lines:
Cultural Entanglements: we will study the hybridizations between high, medium and low level of cultural production from the mid-twentieth century to today, proposing a historical-sociological, cultural-comparative analysis of pop culture. At the same time, the question of the digitization of the processes of production and diffusion of culture will be also studied, from a philosophical and cultural perspective.
Landtelling: the research activity will concern the narrations of the Campania region from the mid-twentieth century to today for a broader discussion on geocritical and environmental history.
