The Faculty of Journalism and Communication Sciences organized its own “book fair”, launching no less than seven titles simultaneously at the headquarters in the Leu Complex, written or coordinated by several professors of the institution.
The dean of FJSC, Antonio Momoc, was also the host of the event which actually turned into a round table, a debate attended by, among others, journalists Andrada Fiscutean, Ion M. Ioniţă and Mihai Constantin (TVR), or the Director executive of the Applied Ethics Research Center at the Faculty of Philosophy, Emilian Mihailov.
“I had this idea to organize this event and to bring together all those who published this year as a sign of gratitude for their scientific and research effort and output,” said the FJSC dean on this occasion.
“Growth and decay. Gustian sociology in the Central-Eastern European context after the Great War” is the title of the first volume presented at FJSC, signed by Theodora-Eliza Văcărescu and Prof. Dr. Zoltan Rostas.
“The purpose of this volume is to present a series of studies and syntheses about the (re)institutionalization of sociology after the Great War, because the years starting from 1918 had a strong impact on every sociology in Central and Eastern Europe.
Briefly presenting the organizational processes of sociology in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Russia and Hungary is a justified approach not only from the perspective of the differences with the West, but especially because each country, in a specific way, conferred sociology a vocation to modernize the entire society”, state the authors of the volume.
Another title that the public discovered was “Femmes, Médias, Sociétés”, made by Prof. univ. Dr. Daniela Rovenţa-Frumuşani.
A volume for students and not only is the “History of Romanian Journalism”, signed by Prof. univ. dr. Marian Petcu, the one who presented not long ago, at the same Tritonic publishing house, the volume “Mass media from Romania after 30 years”.
Lect. university Dr. Daniel Nica spoke about “Who am I? Authenticity and its moral limits”, a book on which he confessed that he worked for five years.
“I started it when people had completely and completely different priorities (…) and I always considered that the need for authenticity represents one of the great aspirations, one of the great problems, which manage to produce one of the greatest crises of the modern individual.
I tried to talk about the pitfalls and the promises that this concept gives,” stated Daniel Nica.
The volume “Mass media from communism for the understanding of young people” had several coordinators: Alexandra Bardan, Antonio Momoc and Gheorghe Anghel, with a foreword by Andrada Fiscutean.
During the winter vacation of the pandemic year 2020, FJSC students were invited to a project about a historical period of Romania in which their parents and grandparents faced all kinds of restrictions: the harsh communism of the 80s. The result was genuine documents of social history, a series of fascinating stories told through objects and media equipment naturalized in the domestic space of the house.
A very hot topic and the order of the day is the one related to fake news, and here University Assistant. dr. Bogdan Oprea came with numerous additions and additions, creating the second edition of the work “Fake news and disinformation online: recognize and verify. Manual for all internet users“.
The volume “Fashion, advertising, consumption”, produced by Romina Surugiu and Dan Podaru, which came from a master’s program that had just appeared in the faculty, was also very well received.
Vice-dean of FJSC, Univ. Conf. Dr. Romina Surugiu testified that this volume, as well as the others, made by fellow professors, appeared as a result of huge efforts:
“We are teachers, we take care of courses, bibliographies, coordination of diploma theses, dissertations, we write all kinds of reports and we have very little time left. From this time that was left to us, our colleagues tore off a piece to work on these volumes. (…) People are working and have achieved things that matter for students and for society”, stated Romina Surugiu.
The event was organized in partnership with the Tritonic Publishing Group, represented by its director, the writer and journalist Bogdan Hrib.
