Human communication has always been considered an almost obvious activity, as a natural phenomenon, to pass over without any particular attention.
A systematic study on communication has started only in the last century, in coincidence with the advent of media and technologies able to speak to the multitudes. Even more recently, communication became a field of academic study. In Italy it occurred later than elsewhere. We believe that communication is a field to explore with all the tools and from all the points of view. We want to provide our scientific communities with careful and critical considerations, because now more than ever the idea that "it is impossible not to communicate" has established itself. Limitless are the ways to influence the facts of the world through communication, and these biases are quickly growing everywhere.
We seek an increasingly more international scientific debate: this is not because this indication comes from a bureaucratic power, but for the great facts of the world are deeply influenced by a global bind.
We want to give a contribution presenting our issues as a lexicon of objects to investigate, starting from the roots of our name, which recalls the Olympic gods' messenger. Our H-ermes got one dash after the H: this means an emphasis on a letter whose function is to connect Communication to Humanities, a strategic meeting point among those disciplines commenting the social individual. It is a dash that carries also the "hermai", the god of communication's first icons, the piles of little stones left on the edge of new paths. Today available to all new media-wanderers.

E-comics: Topicality and untimelineness of comics in digital time. Special issue of “H-ermes. Journal of Communication" (deadline abstracts 15th September 2020)


Per molto tempo, il fumetto è stato considerato un medium votato all’estinzione. Le ragioni di questa idea sono riconducibili soprattutto a una percezione – assai diffusa nel pensiero mediologico di matrice apocalittica – relativa ai processi di mutamento che hanno investito immaginario e tecno-culture della comunicazione


For a long time, comics have been considered a medium destined for extinction. This perception – very widespread in mediological thinking of an apocalyptic matrix – has to be related to the processes of change that invested the imaginary and techno-cultures of communication
