>The global discussion of Cultural studies 
>highlights the strong contemporary interest for 
>new ways of studying and thinking about 
>«culture». The label "Cultural Studies" detects 
>a wide and composite research program across 
>different national settings, whose common lines 
>reside in a shared interest in the field of 
>culture, and in a tendence to elaborate their 
>own methods of investigation drawing 
>eclectically from different disciplines, such as 
>semiotics, sociology, anthropology, 
>historiography, literary criticism, philosophy, 
>as well as the knowledge concerning the arts, the media, the entertainment.
>In a world increasingly crossed by transnational 
>relationships, a fertile dialogue arose between 
>different intellectual traditions, calling into 
>question the traditional divisions between 
>"centres" and "peripheries" of the globe. The 
>organization of a series of meetings on Cultural 
>Studies' suggestions within the Summer School in 
>Adriatic Studies aims to offer to its 
>participants the chance to know and to analyse 
>in more depth the trans- and multi-disciplinary 
>projects which try to critically understand the 
>cultural realities of our current interconnected space.
