Sumario:In this new issue of the Journal we want to celebrate two pleasant news with our authors and researchers in the field of social sciences and humanities. The first, the inclusion of Análisis in the Redalyc database, one of the most important in Ibero-America in terms of open access. We invite authors and readers to register on this platform and disseminate and make visible the different works that are hosted there. This confirms that the editorial team of the publication continues to maintain a firm commitment to the dissemination of research in humanities in different national and international scenarios.The second news pertains directly to the number available —Practices of reading and writing: anthropology and history of reading—: is a joint effort with the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University and the Caro y Cuervo Institute. Reading practices in Colombia have been studied, in a recurrent way, in pedagogical or didactic scenarios, but there are few works that refer to the relationship between reader, context and readable material. Literacy studies —which includes anthropology, sociology and history as part of their system— open new study routes that focus on the connection between reading and society.This issue consider, in an essential way, that reading is a political act traversed by a series of ideological, economic and social factors that cannot and should not be left aside when studying reading territorialities, circulation, reading spaces, learning processes and, of course, the readers themselves.Central elements of these works are the access category and the imaginaries that are woven around reading and writing. It is impossible to study a reading community and its practices without understanding what are the ways of relating to the circle of readability and without asking, first, if it has places to carry out learning processes or socialization of what is read.Consequently, thinking about the vital relationship between materiality and the reader also leads us to consolidate several questions around the state programs of reading promotion, which, apparently, presuppose an indeterminate reader, without differences or specific characteristics. For this reason, this type of work expresses the commitment that the academy must assume as a reflective and critical entity of such programs.Perceiving reading and its practices as a problem in itself, involves a work of recognition of all invisible agents in institutional approaches and whose voice should take the place it deserves. This issue is, then, a stage to listen to them.Finally, readers and researchers can find in the Pull-out included herein some topics that arise from the different research horizons of this publication: literature, comprehensive education, the problem of corruption and the construction of citizenship in school.
