Figure/Ground Communication è il portale che presenta materiali e risorse audio-video sulla proficua relazione tra filosofia e comunicazione. Con la sua serie di interviste offre inoltre spunti di riflessione sul cambiamento che sta investendo il mondo accademico nel nostro tempo che si caratterizza per l’overload informativo, la brevità della concentrazione e la privatizzazione dell’istruzione universitaria.
Figure/Ground Communication is a study and practice in academic journalism. The site investigates a broad range of themes across the humanities and social sciences, specifically those at the crossroads of media studies, continental philosophy, and education. Figure/Ground is academic in the sense that its content is both rigorous and of the highest quality; it is journalistic in the sense that it remains accessible to nonacademic audiences. Therefore it is not purely a collection of academic articles or debates, nor is it simply reporting on events in academia. Rather, it is truly journalistic in the sense that it finds accessible pathways into academic topics through in-depth conversations. Its primary aim is to inform and entertain a highly literate audience made up of university professors as well as graduate and undergraduate students, while remaining accessible to the general public.
