The journal continues the tradition of the Annali di Ca’ Foscari, founded in 1962, collecting the occidentalistica inheritance. It is an expression of the Department of Language and Cultural Studies comparative University Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and wants to represent the different disciplinary souls: the literary and philological studies, linguistic and language teaching studies, historical studies. Geographical areas are those of European countries, the Americas and the postcolonial world. In the languages of those countries are written, as well as in Italian and English, the contributions to the magazine, the publication of which is made after an assessment procedure (‘double-blind’) by at least two reviewers. Preserving the international scope of the past, the Western Newly Annals welcome essays, reviews and notes of qualified Italian and foreign scholars. Very interested in the new generations and the future of research, the magazine also hosts and promotes the works of young scholars (postdocs, fellows, postdocs, graduate students, graduates) of Italian and foreign universities. Combining the interdisciplinary with attention to the specificities of the cultural areas, giving space to the theory as to the history, Annali occidentali – which will have an annual basis – are proposed as a place for discussion and dialogue.
