About us

The group "Bonds, creativity and culture" (VCC) was born from the merger of two previous groups ("Emotional culture and identity" and "Creativity and Cultural Heritage"), with the goal to articulate and deepen the relationship between social and cultural dynamics examined in the original projects.

We try to illustrate and reflect on the ways in which social bonds influence creative processes, and vice versa: how cultural and creative processes contribute to consolidate or deteriorate social bonds. For this reason, our research has a markedly interdisciplinary character: conceptual contributions from different human and social sciences (History and Art History, Philosophy, Linguistics, Communication, Musicology) are complemented by attention to historically situated cultural dynamics, focusing especially, though not exclusively, on the Hispanic world.

The research of group aims, in short, to document and reflect on the circularity between social links and cultural and creative processes and, from there, to generate an interdisciplinary dialogue from which concrete proposals in the field of social and cultural policies can follow.
