|Description:||Altre Modernità (AM), a six-monthly journal, ISSN 2035-7680, features articles, discussions, interviews, translations, creative works, reviews, and bibliographical information on the cultural production of Modernity. The themes and topics tackled in each issue will take Altre Modernità to areas of the world traditionally perceived as geographically and culturally disparate, aiming at capturing the newness of the cultural paradigms that are taking shape in several places today in order to isolate, subvert, weaken or transcend the monologic discourse of mainstream culture.
AM is dedicated to the study of the peripheries of the world and the peripheries of societies that act as vibrant centres of cultural production, with special attention paid to those aspects of his cultural production that offer alternative models, suggestions and tools for overcoming it. The literary discourse still represents - for Altre Modernità - the point of departure and the unavoidable hub collating explorations in contiguous cultural and artistic fields.
Altre Modernità is an Open Access journal devoted to the promotion of competent and definitive contributions to literary and cultural studies knowledge. The journal welcomes also works that fall into various disciplines: cultural studies, religion, history, literature, liberal arts, law, political science, computer science and economics that deal with contemporary issues, as listed in AM CfPs. Altre Modernità uses a policy of double-blind blind review (in which both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process) by at least two consultants to evaluate articles accepted for consideration. Altre Modernità promotes special issues on particular topics of special relevance in the cultural debates. Altre Modernità occasionally has opportunities for Guest Editors for special issues of the journal.
