Scholars from different disciplines confirm that our planet has recently entered into a new epoch in its history: the “Anthropocene” period.

It refers to a new geological era characterized by the action of humans, for the first time having the capability of modifying and conditioning the morphology of the globe and therefore its ecology in an increasingly significant way.

Such a transformation has not occurred without pain. From the middle of the 20th century, industrial growth and expansion, the accelerating rhythm of energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and unprecedented population growth have consumed two thirds of the globe’s ecosystems: a situation of mounting unsustainability

About us

Glocalism” is a peer-reviewed, open access and cross-disciplinary journal that aims at stimulating increasing awareness and knowledge around the new dynamics that characterise the glocal reality.

A journal on glocalism that corresponds with the very concept of being glocal and wants to be recognised in a cultural-academic context can only be available on-line.

So as to elicit as much on-line discussion as possible among academics, each edition of the journal will:
a) deal with a main subject and
b) be characterised by research essays (received after the call for papers and subjected to double-blind peer-review).

As “Glocalism” is a four-monthly journal, three issues will be published annually: at end-March, end-July, end-November. The publication of each issue is preceded by the publication of the Call for papers for the following monographic issue.
