STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA

Rivista di Sociologia

La rivista nasce nel 1963, voluta dal rettore dell'Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore Francesco Vito, che ne sarà il direttore fino al 1968. Dal 1976 essa è diretta da Vincenzo Cesareo. La nascita di "Studi di Sociologia" si colloca in un momento che registra nel nostro paese una espansione degli studi, delle ricerche e delle pubblicazioni scientifiche nel campo della sociologia e la storia della rivista corre in parallelo con questo processo. Da sempre attenta all'evoluzione del dibattito sociologico in Italia e all'estero, ospita saggi di teoria sociologica e resoconti di ricerca empirica dei più affermati studiosi. Svolge inoltre un rilevante ruolo di promozione dei giovani ricercatori.



Processo di selezione
I contributi presentati a "Studi di Sociologia" sono valutati, in forma anonima, da studiosi competenti per la specifica disciplina; la rivista prevede uno screening iniziale a cura della redazione e un processo di referaggio double-blind peer review.

Obiettivi e campo di applicazione
La rivista si propone di:

  • dibattere e proporre temi sociologicamente rilevanti a livello nazionale e internazionale;
  • promuovere un solido scambio intellettuale tra diverse prospettive all'interno delle scienze sociali, tra diversi approcci teorici e metodologici e tra diverse generazioni di studiosi;
  • promuovere ricerca teorica ed empirica su un’ampia gamma di temi sociologici;
  • supportare lo sviluppo di politiche e pratiche.

SUMMARY

Società, natura e resilienza. Un’introduzione
di Alfredo Alietti, Dario Padovan pagine: 8 € 6,00
Resilience: Towards an Interdisciplinary Synthesis?
di Julian Reid pagine: 15 € 6,00
Abstract
The concept of resilience is increasingly influential across the sciences but discussions of its significance between different fields of science remain under-developed. In the social sciences there is much debate as to the value of  resilience, and while some proponents of the concept are enthusiastic about it, many have dismissed it as an element of the ideology of neoliberalism. In the life sciences by contrast, and especially in the field of neurobiology, the  message concerning resilience has been much more upbeat and yet also more profound. To the extent that it is rare to encounter research which questions the basic ontology of the concept. This gulf in perspectives and approaches  between the social and the life sciences raises important questions. Why is there so much critique of resilience in the social sciences and so little in the life sciences? Is it possible to build bridges between the biological affirmation of  resilience and its social scientific critique? This article explores potential answers to these and related questions.
Resilienza comunitaria: dalla definizione teorica alle dimensioni empiriche. Esiti di una scoping review
di Michele Marzulli, Nicoletta Pavesi pagine: 13 € 6,00
Abstract
The academic and public success of the term resilience, which has also risen to a paradigm of public intervention in the economy with the Italian NextGenEU plan (PNRR), lies in some ways in its indefiniteness. While this indefinite  character makes the term usable in different contexts, it also risks emptying it of meaning, qualifying much of social intervention as capable of producing “resilience”. The paper presents the results of a scoping review conducted  through the analysis of English-language articles indexed in Sociological Abstracts whose topic is the operationalization of the concept of community resilience. Through an analysis of the texts obtained by querying the Sociological  abstracts DB, the research first highlights the dimensions that are used in research to assess how resilient a community is: alongside the traditional dimensions of physical infrastructure, socio-economic aspects and institutional  aspects, the dimensions of transformation and learning emerged as new. From a methodological point of view, the analysis made it possible to verify the development of participatory processes in the construction of community  resilience indicators, processes that not only allow for greater contextualization of the indicators, but also foster the creation of communities that are competent and engaged in being resilient.
Resilienza come strategia neoliberista: tra spiegazione e superamento
di Cleto Corposanto, Umberto Pagano pagine: 11 € 6,00
Abstract
Over the past fifteen years, the concept of resilience has gained prominence in academia and practical management. Some even consider it the organizing principle of contemporary political life. Resilience is hailed as a solution to  diverse issues, from international governance to climate change. Its popularity is intertwined with complexity epistemologies. However, within social sciences, concerns have arisen. Resilience’s application to social systems requires a  stronger theoretical underpinning, free from functionalist paradigms. There are reservations about its handling of conflicts, knowledge, and power dynamics. The concept implies adaptation to external events, potentially sidelining  proactive interventions. Critics argue that resilience reinforces a neoliberal rationality, accentuating individual and community responsibility, and potentially diminishing social protection. It can function instrumentally, normalizing  vulnerability and encouraging self-surveillance. This paper engages with these critiques, aiming to move beyond ideological criticism and embrace a pragmatic approach to advance resilience in social sciences.
Sulla resilienza. Appunti per una sociologia dei sistemi socio-ecologici
di Davide Grasso, Claudio Marciano, Alessandro Sciullo pagine: 13 € 6,00
Abstract
Like a virus making a species jump, the concept of resilience has been the protagonist of an impressive interdisciplinary spill over. This article focuses on the difficulties of including this concept in the epistemic plane of the social  sciences, and proposes an analysis of the limitations encountered when it is applied beyond physical and natural systems, in contexts characterised by components and regulatory processes at a different level of ontological  stratification, such as Socio-Ecological Systems (ESS). The contribution is structured in three parts: the first focuses on the interdisciplinary genealogy of the concept and the reflections that have attempted to interpret the causes,  modalities and effects of its growing relevance for the social sciences. The second addresses some interpretative problems and proposes possible theoretical and methodological solutions oriented towards the inclusion of resilience in  the domain of the social sciences. The last part delves into the case of a peculiar ESS such as that of mountainous inland areas, in which the dynamics of resilience are observed from an inverted perspective compared to the  traditional one, namely by conceiving repopulation phenomena as trauma, rather than depopulation.
Where Resilience Fails: Transformative Agency in Liminal Spaces
di Licinia Pascucci, Andrea Taffuri pagine: 16 € 6,00
Abstract
With the incredible rise of multifaceted socio-ecological crises, the concept of resilience has seen such a cross-cutting diffusion in both academic and policy arenas, resulting in a panacea incapable of translating the intricacies and  geometries of power embedded in societal complex systems. This conceptual vagueness, rather than unintentional, constitutes an explicit strategy within the new neoliberal design that conceals the power domination over marginal  communities, particularly border crossers. Drawing on qualitative, field-based research held in Lesvos (GR), this paper wants to deconstruct the techno-managerial appropriation of the resilience concept, particularly underlying  the  several criticalities in terms of socio-spatial segregation and punitive management of marginality that could arise from it. Therefore, it will investigate why and to what extent the actual EU migration policies and narratives, by  framing migration flows as a sort of resilient adaptation strategies, represent a necropolitical strategy that implies the control and the reshaping of bodies, cultures, social roles, and agencies, through different domination strategies.  Opposed to the top-down hegemonic apparatus, different forms of resilience are created by migrants in the liminal space in which they create, reshape, and produce new space and values. We will conclude with a reframing of  resilience under a more comprehensive and systemic view that can represent an exercise of affirmative biopolitics of cross-border communities and rethink borderlands as a space of new multiple possibilities and identities.
