MONOGRAPHIC SECTION ON "POLITICAL SOLITUDE"

Guest editors: Paulina BarreraCamilla EmmeneggerTommaso FrangioniGaia GondinoGiulia MarroccoliMoreno Stambazzi

In an age of disintermediation and fading of great mass movements, the "spectre" of solitude seems to appear on the political, social and media scene. Following Mair, we think, for example, of how "the widening gap between rulers and ruled has facilitated the often strident populist challenge" (Mair: 2013), in a political space characterized by the disengagement of both elites and citizens.

On the one hand, and as proof of this disengagement, no political formations that could effectively deal with current phenomena of existential precarization or the challenges posed by migratory flows have emerged. On the other hand, despite the fact that in recent years the welfare state has been reduced in many European countries, due to the intensification of austerity measures, the formation of protest movements similar to those of 2012 (e.g. Indignados and Occupy) has not been observed. Finally, with respect to subjective level, we consider the detachment from politics - both as discourse and practice - well exemplified by the inability to build collective representations of individual problems.

Special issue [deadline May 15th, 2018]  

Varieties of Professionalism in a Globalising World: New Theoretical Perspectives and Analytical Approaches

            Guest Editors: 

  • Andrea Bellini (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Firenze) 
  • Lara Maestripieri (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow, Universitat Autonòma de Barcelona)

The special issue here presented aims to deal with the multiple complexities that are now emerging in the sociology of professions: the acknowledgement for emerging professions; the eroded power of peer-based systems of professionalization; the growing inequalities among professionals; the rise of precarious employment among expert labourers; the increasing entanglement of professional jurisdictions, which stems from conflicts between locally-, nationally- and globally-based professional activities; the emerging professionalism in developing countries.
