Su questo tema abbiamo ascoltato l'opinione di storici della letteratura, critici letterari, editori, bibliografi, bibliotecari, insegnanti, pedagogisti.Nowadays does the idea of “literary canon”, i.e. a selection of readings for young people, still make sense? Literary historians, literary critics, publishers, bibliographers, librarians, teachers, educators: we asked for their opinion about this topic

    Lo stargate della lettura, ovvero il passaggio che stiamo attraversando

    Un’analisi delle trasformazioni intervenute nell’ultimo ventennio nel campo della lettura deve partire da una valutazione del ruolo che alcuni fattori esterni hanno avuto sui consumi culturali e sui comportamenti individuali, tra i quali spicca la pervasività della rete e l’utilizzo intensivo dei social network. La rete ha infilato nelle nostre tasche un universo sconfinato di informazioni, saperi, distrazioni, bisogni e piaceri, che in poco tempo ha reso irrimediabilmente vecchio tutto ciò che esisteva prima e ha fatto perdere al libro – almeno agli occhi dei più giovani – la centralità che questo strumento ha esercitato per secoli nella comunicazione culturale e nei processi formativi, per far posto a nuovi ‘stili conoscitivi’.Le misure di distanziamento imposte dal Covid-19 hanno inoltre provocato una forte e improvvisa accelerazione del trasferimento sulla rete di molte attività umane, scaraventandoci in un mondo sconosciuto e in un clima da fantascienza, come quello descritto nel film e nella serie TV Stargate.In questo contesto, il mondo dell’editoria chiede provvedimenti che incentivino la domanda e un sostegno alle imprese, ma è necessaria una progettualità di più ampio respiro che investa la produzione e l’offerta editoriale, le modalità di circolazione e commercializzazione dei prodotti e i contesti in cui si sviluppano le pratiche di lettura, sfruttando le potenzialità del digitale e incuriosendo nuove fasce di lettori. Le trasformazioni più significative saranno tuttavia il risultato degli stili di vita che si diffonderanno nell’era post-Covid: ciò riguarderà l’assetto urbano, la sopravvivenza delle librerie di prossimità e dei servizi pubblici territoriali, come le biblioteche di base.An analysis of changes occurred in the last twenty years in the field of reading must start from an evaluation of the role that some external factors have had on cultural consumption and individual behavior, among which the pervasiveness of the web and the intensive use of social networks stands out. The web has put in our pockets a boundless universe of information, knowledge, distractions, needs and pleasures, which in a short time has made irremediably old everything that existed before and has made the book lose – at least in the eyes of the youngest – the centrality that this tool has exercised for centuries in cultural communication and training processes, to make way for new ‘styles of knowledge’.The distancing measures imposed by Covid-19 have also caused a strong and sudden acceleration of the transfer of many human activities on the web, throwing us into an unknown world and a science fiction climate, like the one described in the movie and the TV series Stargate.In this context, the publishing world is asking for measures to stimulate demand and support to businesses, but a broader planning that invests the production and publishing offer is needed, the way products are circulated and marketed and the contexts in which reading practices are developed, exploiting the potential of digital and intriguing new groups of readers. However, the most significant transformations will be the result of the lifestyles that will spread in the post-Covid era: these lifestyles will affect urban planning, the survival of local bookshops and local public services, such as basic libraries

    Proposal of Visual Literacy Indicators for competencies courses. An academic literacy perspective for academic excellence

    Get PDF
    The paper presents the results of a reasearch based on the evaluation culture approach and particularly on the social corporate responsibility of universities and their duty to account for the quality of their mission, researches, teaching and dissemination of knowledge. Metrics and international rankings have been developed to measure value and performance of the universities; as a consequence, the academic world must express appropriate means in order to improve its position in quality evaluation rankings. The research project focuses on “La Sapienza” University of Rome and especially on international rankings and metrics used to measure its degree of information literacy.The indicators that would take advantage of a program devoted to digital competences are here listed and analyzed to underline: a) the instructional plan, based on the cooperation between researchers-professors and librarians; connectivism as a pedagogical concept; the flipped classroom methodology; the necessity of taking into due account visual competencies and social networks; Educational Digital Objects as Web didactic materials; b) the educational plan meant to enhance visual competences, given the relevance of virtual and augmented reality for university education. The best Visual Literacy standards are selected to empower iconic and visual reading and to envision effective goals, learnign units, methodology and quality. The evaluation must then be considered as one of the principal results of the research itself: it must be based on competecies and quality, and the 13 indicators suggested to measure the educational program –  feedback and other metrics included –  will be of great use to help the University to highlight its quality standards. The paper presents the results of a research based on the evaluation culture approach and particularly on the social corporate responsibility of universities and their duty to account for the quality of their mission, researches, teaching and dissemination of knowledge.

    The intervention sums up the story of the bibliographic Superintendences, ministerial offices funded in 1919 and transferred to the Regions in 1972, and talks about their positioning within the history of the cultural policies from the Italian unification onwards. Sources used have been legislative and regulatory acts, essays on the subject from different periods and written testimonies of sector's operators. The immediate reason for this has been the need to study the development of state and regional policies on this matter when reform interventions deeply modify the balance of the last forty years. The survey has outlined also the persistence of never-solved problems in the planning of public interventions: for example, different functions have been managed by eclectic structures and at the same time the performance of the single functions has been fragmented based on their own institutions
