Donne, doni e cibi rituali nel rito nuziale barbaricino digital
Anno: 2013
This two-year study is currently being undertaken in Barbagia. Through local mediators, we have found groups of people in every community who have agreed to be interviewed about their own weddings. For every community or village, an average of six accounts have been recorded. The mediators were asked to find people of varying ages, without specifying gender. The interviews have been carried out by partially structured interviews and recorded digitally. From the start, it has been clear that marriage is strongly understood to be the business of the female side of society: for all, marriage is «a woman’s affair». From the initial examination of the material, three elements appear fundamental for the analysis of the rite of marriage: the role of the woman in the relationship between families and the relationships within their own family, the role of gifts and the presence of ritual foods.

Servizio sociale e ricerca sociale digital
Anno: 2013
The research activities in the area of social work are situated in the theoretical and empirical sociological tradition. From the latter is derives tools and attitudes needed to build up its own peculiar culture and to develop a sort of sociological imagination. The research in the field of social work draws from the sociological tradition, both tools and methodological attitude, always consistent with the object under consideration and the aims of the research itself. The evolution of the social work as subject matter and field of study has been framed within the debate among social sciences and in a tight relationship with them. However, the research side cannot be kept separated from the operational side of the social worker’s professional activities: both for historical reasons, but also because of the operative nature of the knowledge at stake. The paper presents a brief investigation into the meanings of the research activity in the current experience of the social work.

Il soggetto relazionale: definizione ed esempi digital
Anno: 2012
P. Donati, The Relational Subject: Definition and Examples In ordinary life, we, qua individuals, often speak in the plural by referring to a ‘We’. People say: we had lunch together, we went on holiday together, and so on and so forth. Usually, this ‘we’ is a term whose referent remains unspecified and serves only to indicate which people were involved in an event. Philosophers and social scientists agree that the ‘we’ cannot be a simple aggregate of individuals who are supposed to share an idea, action or a purpose. There must be more than that, but when they try to give an explanation of what lies behind the ‘we’, they also differ greatly in how they account for it. It becomes essential to reach a clearer and sounder view of what constitutes the ‘we’ as a social subject. The Author claims that most current explanations of the ‘plural subject’ are both ill-founded and inadequate for the job and puts forward an alternative sociological theory, which introduces the concept of the ‘relational subject’, as a more complex and robust concept of what a ‘we-subject’ is. Key words: relational subject, reflexivity, we-relation, relational goods, relational sociology

Il mondo, ovvero il male di perder tempo digital
Anno: 2012
L. Diotallevi, The world. That is: the evil of loosing time This paper is the result of an attempt to look for the “after” within the social realm, and of an attempt to take this challenge very seriously. Equating time to space is the starting point. Such an equating is also seen as a dramatic characteristic of the early modernity, of its phisics as well as of the state of its politics. Then assuming the luhmannian analysis of the path followed by the social differentiation during the course of modernization, up to the present primacy over that process exercised by the functional differentiation of the society, makes observable both the reapparaisal of the variety of temporalities and the planification and semplification of those temporalities planned and executesd by the egemony project of the state organization. So we are forced to account for the alternative remaining between saeculum – as paradigm centred on the variety of the temporalities – and secularization – as paradigm shaped on the abolition of that variety via spatialization –. Key words: society, social differentiation, space / time, Luhmann.

Leisure time giovanile e costruzione di capitale sociale: una rassegna digital
Anno: 2012
F.M. Lo Verde, Leisure time and the construction of social capital: a review The production of social capital in a specific area of everyday life such as leisure time and the different socio-cultural contexts it is experienced in is a very interesting research issue, especially in the light of certain specific meanings of the notion of social capital, such as Bourdieu’s or, more recently, Putnam’s. Nonetheless, this research issue is scarcely taken into consideration in Italy. Albeit inexaustively, this paper intends to introduce this issue starting from a brief review on the generation of social capital in youth’s leisure time contexts. In the first paragraph I problematize the notion of social capital as referred to leisure time “contexts” as well as analyze either the social capital literature dealing with the modes and experiences of leisure time, or the leisure time literature focusing on the construction of social capital in leisure time contexts. In the second paragraph I discuss some studies regarding the ways in which a particular age range – youth – produces social capital in leisure time contexts. In the third paragraph I focus on some studies regarding the issue of youth’s leisure time as a potential “antisocial” time. In the fourth paragraph I introduce the discussion about the little importance given to public leisure in the service provision for youth’s leisure time and the consequences determined by that in terms of social capital «erosion». The conclusion offers three metaphors for understanding the trends of leisure time and sociability. Key words: leisure studies; leisure time, Social capital
