With the advent of digital technologies, the term immersivity is gradually spreading. This lemma, which finds its root in the Latin mergĕre, to plunge, refers to the experience of a body completely enveloped by an environment, thus accounting for the shift from a purely spectatorial dimension to an immersive relationship to images  (Eugeni 2018).

Violence is constantly at the centre of the media scene. The arts have developed countless representations of it, and researchers such as Pierre Clastres and René Girard have identified it as one of the fundamental driving forces of cultural history. All the social sciences are interested in it, but always as if it were an obvious phenomenon in itself, which everyone is able to recognize: a "fact", without asking what we are really talking about when we speak of "violence".

The purpose of this seminar is to reflect on how educators teach in an effective and affective way in educational environments transformed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The transformation of face-to-face courses into courses taught online has altered teaching methodologies and how instructors interact with their students. In the humanities, the interpersonal interaction between the instructor and students is an important determining factor to ensure that subject matter is effectively assimilated by students.
