Bisanzio e l'Occidente
ISSN: 2611-9870
Copertina
Scopi e ambiti della rivista sono mutuati da quelli del Centro di ricerca coordinato Unimi Bisanzio e l'Occidente:

Il Centro continua un fecondo filone di studi su Bisanzio nato in Unimi negli anni '50 con Raffaele Cantarella e articolatosi in insegnamenti filologico-letterari, storiografici e storico-artistici, nel segno di una fruttuosa multidisciplinarietà  che si vuole conservare e accrescere.

Il Centro intende rendere identificabile ed espandere la rete degli studiosi di Bisanzio nelle sue manifestazioni letterarie, storiografiche,linguistiche, artistiche; si propone poi come collegamento tra studiosi di tematiche connesse a Bisanzio nella più ampia accezione, come i presupposti della civiltà letteraria e artistica bizantina

nel mondo greco e latino imperiale/tardoantico; le interrelazioni tra Oriente bizantino e Occidente medievale latino e romanzo; la fortuna di Bisanzio nella storia della cultura europea occidentale dall'Umanesimo in poi.

    SCS Annual Meeting, San Diego, CA, January 4, 2019
    Invited Sesquicentennial Panel
    A 1980 APA/SCS committee report (Research Tools for the Classics) was correct on both counts to declare cartography at that date “an area of extremely great importance, where the state of our tools is utterly disastrous.”  The panel briefly discusses the disappointing lack of progress made during the previous past century, and advances reasons for its limitations (Papers #1, 2).  The main focus of the five papers, however, is on the transformation successfully achieved since around 1980, and still ongoing.

    Panskoye I. Vol. 1, The Monumental Building U6
    The first volume of Panskoye I reports the results of research into a monumental building (U6), which was erected after the takeover by the city of Chersonesos, and details the very varied and rich finds such as sculpture, pottery, lamps, terracottas, coins, metals, stone and glass objects, and graffiti, excavated here. The architecture and layout of the building is studied in detail, and the results of a number of scientific studies, such as geological, palaeo-botanical and petrographic analyses are also included. The Introduction presents the large-scale survey of Northwestern Crimea which began in 1959, of which the excavations of Panskoye I (1964-94) form a central part.

    History of Science in South Asia
    Page Header Logo
    An Open Access journal for the history of all forms of scientific thought and action, ancient and modern, in all regions of South Asia.   See further, Focus and Scope

    We take “South Asia” as an inclusive, non-political, socio-geographic term referring to the area from Afghanistan to Sri Lanka, from Pakistan to Bangladesh, and of course India. Research on the influences of South Asian cultures beyond these borders is also welcome, for example Nepalese or Tibetan influences on China, Sri Lankan influences on the Maldives, or Indian influences in South-East Asia.

    We take “science” to be broadly conceived, and to include all forms of rigorous intellectual activity that adopt at least to some extent a quantitative and empirical approach, as in the German “Die Wissenschaft,” that covers most forms of academic scholarship. Theoretical discussions of the meaning of “science” in the South Asian context are welcome. They should presuppose some familiarity with topics such as those raised in sources like Grant, A History of Natural Philosophy (2007), Latour, Laboratory Life (1979), Staal, Concepts of Science in Europe and Asia</i> (1993, PDF), Shapin, “Science and the Modern World” (2007, PDF), Netz, The Shaping of Deduction (2003, PDF of review by Latour), Pollock, “The Languages of Science in Early-Modern India” (in Forms of Knowledge in Early Modern Asia, 2011), and similar reflective works that explore Global History, the interpretation of Modernities, and the general meaning of science in the pre-modern world.

    Skenè. Journal of Theatre and Drama Studies
    ISSN: 2421-4353
    http://www.skenejournal.it/public/journals/1/pageHeaderTitleImage_en_US.jpg
    Founded in 2014 by Guido Avezzù, Silvia Bigliazzi, and Alessandro Serpieri, Skenè. JTDS wishes to inspire and host, in a new academic site, a vivacious debate on issues, questions and specifics of drama and theatre texts from the antiquity to the present. Areas of special interest are the forms, modes and genres of play texts, and the impact of dramaturgy and performance on their codification. The journal intends to stimulate a discussion on critical approaches to the play text and the performance text within an interdisciplinary context. Philological, linguistic, rhetorical, semiotic, and translation studies, as well as literary and philosophical hermeneutics, reception studies, sociology of theatre, and performance studies will all contribute to a lively confrontation between different perspectives and critical views. The journal promotes the interaction between international scholars of various humanistic areas, furthering a dialogue between renowned and younger researchers.

    The Pompeii Artistic Landscape Project (PALP) is an online resource, based in a Linked Open Data (LOD) format, to encourage sitewide discovery, mapping, analysis, and sharing of information about Pompeian artworks in their architectural contexts. The goal of PALP is to dramatically increase the number of researchers and members of the public who can access, analyze, interpret, and share the artworks of the most richly documented urban environment of the Roman world: Pompeii.
    The Pompeii Artistic Landscape Project (PALP) is a collaborative initiative between Eric Poehler at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Sebastian Heath at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University. Based on data from the Pompeii Bibliography and Mapping Project and built in Omeka-S, PALP is generously funded through a grant from the Getty Foundation, as part of its Digital Art History initiative.

    Drawing contributions from distinguished scholars of theatre and in the humanities but also encouraging the collaboration of young researchers, the Skenè Project aims at fostering and furthering contemporary critical debate on drama and theatre texts and at promoting a fertile confrontation between different critical approaches with an emphasis on international and interdisciplinary perspectives. The Project also revolves around the creation of digital research tools such as hypertext databases and archives designed to make available to scholars and students a corpus of dramatic source material, scripts, and criticism.

      Vol 8, No 16 (2014): Platão e as formas

      Entre 5 e 8 de maio de 2014, o Laboratório Ousía promoveu o seminário Platão: o diálogo e as formas, contando com a presença de professores brasileiros especialistas no pensamento platônico e do renomado platonista italiano Franco Trabattoni, da Università degli Studi di Milano. O objetivo principal do seminário foi apresentar para os alunos da UFRJ e para o público interessado em geral as pesquisas correntes desses professores, enfocando tanto questões relativas ao conteúdo do pensamento platônico, com ênfase em sua questão central, o problema das formas, quanto aspectos do diálogo como método de pensamento, uma vez que esse figura como veículo privilegiado da filosofia de Platão.
      O presente número da AFC traz artigos de alguns dos participantes desse seminário.  Em “A brincadeira de Eutidemo e Dionisodoro no Eutidemo de Platão”, Paula Lopes (UNIRIO) busca problematizar, através da distinção “falar a sério” e “brincar” presente no diálogo, a relação entre formas do discurso e teoria das formas presente no Eutidemo. Izabela Aquino (UERJ), em “Entre o Parmênides e o Sofista de Platão: há ideia de cabelo? Há ideia da lama?”, pretende apontar, em passagens do Parmênides e do Sofista, para uma saída possível da aporia lançada por Parmênides quanto à teoria das formas no diálogo homônimo.Em “Eros e Thanatos”, Susana de Castro defende a não unidade do pensamento platônico, tomando como objeto de investigação uma comparação dos diálogos Fédon e Fedro no tocante a seus posicionamentos acerca da alma, do amor e da morte. Luísa Buarque (PUC-Rio), em “A parte e o todo: atomismo e linguagem no Sofista”, investiga a crítica ao atomismo passível de ser encontrada nas reflexões sobre a linguagem apresentadas nesse diálogo. “Platão e Heráclito em três diálogos”, de Ana Flaksman (UNIRIO) examina a presença e importância do pensamento heraclítico e de seus desdobramentos no Banquete, no Teeteto e no Sofista. Por fim, mas não menos importante, “Alle origini del ‘platonismo’: che cos’è, propriamente, la teoria delle idee?” é a transcrição de uma das aulas ministradas por Franco Trabattoni (UNIMI) no minicurso que o professor ministrou, homônimo ao seminário: nessa aula, Trabattoni discute vários dos problemas que decorrem da via propositiva platônica, isto é, de sua colocação e defesa de uma teoria das formas.
      Recebemos, finalmente, para a seção de traduções, mais seis diatribes de Epicteto, traduzidas por Aldo Dinucci.
      Carla Francalanci, editora convidada.

      Vol 8, No 15 (2014): Platão, predicação e ontologia

      Este número é dedicado à filosofia de Platão. É uma homenagem dos Anais de Filosofia Clássica à International Plato Society, que promoverá seu XI Simpósio em Brasília, sob a presidência de Gabriele Cornelli, professor da UnB. Temos artigos tratando da Teoria das Ideias sob diferentes ângulos: como o problema da predicação no Crátilo, por José Gabriel Trindade ou no comentário peripatétido do De Ideis por Irley Franco e Renato Brandão. Temos a abordagem da teoria sob os ângulos cosmológicos e ontológicos no Timeu, por Luca Pitteloud e sob a questão do conhecimento, por Francisco de Moraes. E temos uma apropriação na filosofia contemporânea da discussão acerca da condição humana, a partir do Filebo, por Carla Francalanci. Por todas as vias, Platão aparece como um filósofo com quem não se pode abandonar o diálogo, sob pena de perder o eixo que é capaz de articular a diversidade das Filosofias.
