Fabrizio Serra editore, Pisa · Roma

«Non. A Journal of Alternative Sexualities in Ancient and Modern Literature and the Arts» is a new international journal designed to foster debate on artistic engagements with theories and practices of sexual non-conformity. While we are aware that artistic codes involve specific technical and sectoral skills, the decision to open a new space for debate was determined by a broader philosophical assumption. The geographies of the imaginary, which take shape in the spheres of literature, arts and the media, enact a performative negotiation of cultural models that allows us to access changing cultural, historical and theoretical debates around sexuality. Our title, Non, underlines our desire to challenge current perspectives, and to take a resolute stand of refusal when it comes to defining a normative sexuality. Instead, we welcome the ideas on which the arts and artists have focused. Alternative sexualities are therefore not only what are firmly established as minority identities, but also theories and practices in which sexuality is structurally incompatible with the coordinates of cultural systems. In other words, we are interested in all sexual theories and artistic practices that reject and rewrite normative dichotomies, and that in doing so question the rigidity of category-based social systems.The journal welcomes the widest array of studies on the question of alternative sexualities: the debate is open to historical investigations of literature and the arts, to psychoanalysis, thematic criticism, and the many branches of queer theory. The journal also aims to challenge the boundaries imposed by traditional divisions of knowledge in terms both of history and of geography; hence, to bring together perspectives on artistic forms from antiquity to the 21st century, and diverse cultural traditions.
