After the call for papers on “Erasmian Science. The influence on Early-Modern science of Erasmus of Rotterdam and his legacy”, that we had issued in collaboration with the Max-Planck Institute for the History of Science, we had undertaken another one, titled Gastronomie et révolution. It was issued in January 2015, in collaboration with Ludovic Frobert and Nicola Perullo.

Among the submissions we received, we have selected three abstracts, and the proposers will be invited to the G&R seminar, that is to be held in Piedmont (IT) in Autumn 2015. After the seminar, the purpose of which shall be to improve the selected contributions in an open discussion, the texts will be given their final form and will appear in a special issue of our Journal, together with other contributions.

In this number, alongside three articles by young women researchers in the peer-reviewed section, we present again a Review-Interview—this time Pietro Omodeo challenges Roger Cooter to a discussion on the critical intellectual's present role.
