The world of the 21st century develops between the paradox of the coexistence of millions of human beings deprived of speech, unable to express their ideas, their feelings or their desires, and millions of people who communicate permanently from their mobile devices. These new experiences, sensibilities, and emotional narratives have a particular flavor and color depending on the place in which they are produced. This book tries to answer the question about the proximity and distances between the technologies, communications, and narratives produced in different times/spaces on the planet. This book aims to focus on the close relationship between new technologies and the narrative of emotions, showing their implications for identity construction and political action. The book is divided into three discontinuous but interconnected parts. The first addresses, from various theoretical perspectives, the epochal transformations that are taking place at the crossroads between the new century, the Covid-19 pandemic, the 4.0 “revolution”, and the creation, reproduction, and criticism of the elaboration of narratives. The second makes evident the impact of the features of this “new era” in and through communication products and technologies where television series, artificial intelligence, and new forms of power are superimposed. The third and final part focuses on pointing out how in the studies of images, the analysis of social policies, and creativity/expressiveness is a way to capture sensibilities, where the connections between emotions and narratives clearly appear in the scenario of 4.0 inquiry strategies.
