Abstract

The present issue of Between contains the proceedings of the 2014 Compalit annual conference, The Political Imaginary: Commitment, Resistance, Ideology (Bologna, 17-19 December 2014). It was a brimming, vibrant conference with eleven plenary speeches, over a hundred papers delivered in parallel sessions, the presentation of the previous issue of Between, the launch of the textbook on Comparative Literature edited by Francesco de Cristofaro, and a passionate and crowded evening round table with two members from the Wu Ming collective. Most of the papers presented in Bologna appear in this very rich issue. Clearly, much has changed since the original conception and elaboration of the conference programme: during the presentations and in the ensuing discussions, novel perspectives, reflections and questions have been raised, and many of them have been taken up in the essays collected here. The broad scope of the present issue and the multiplicity of points of view, competences and critical approaches epitomize the dissonance and complexity of the topic under discussion.
