Created by a group of historians, Contesti (“Contexts”) is an attempt to better understand social complexity through the analysis of the oft-hidden relationships and exchanges among people, social groups and institutions. In order to address our aim, the journal aims to reconstitute contextual analyses as defined through explicit and implicit relationships whose relevance can be established. Inspired by micro-history, Contesti intends to investigate the nature and the transformation of social phenomena by putting the accent on the continual interaction between personal choices and political strategies, between economic mechanisms and the circulation of ideas, as well as between cultural systems and individual behavior. The review is open to contributions from all disciplines and is made up of three sections: original research, interviews with researchers, and discussions of literature, cinema and essays. Contesti is published twice a year. (Davide Tabor, Editor of Contesti. Rivista di microstoria) See: www.contestirivista.it
