Featured Projects


The first issue of the Oral Archives journal (OArJ), the new journal of the Department of Philology and Literary Criticism, will be published in 2024. OArJ represents the virtual meeting place for those who, from different perspectives, deal with oral and voice archives: it intends to fill a gap in the Italian publishing world and to connect academia with public and private institutions that curate oral sources in various capacities.


With the aim of providing specialised monographs and/or conference proceedings, simple and comprehensive teaching materials on topics traditionally addressed in treatise form or with sectorial approaches, the following series will also be launched:

In particular, it will privilege topics concerning the challenges of Agenda 2030, of open science, of digital transformation and of networks and communication.
