1The collaborations which have led to this #50 issue of the ILCEA Journal extend across oceans and disciplines, but started in the virtual space of an online conference in November 2020. The conference, entitled “Hospitalities, Hostilities: Narratives and Representations”, was supposed to be the closing event of the IDEX HOMES project initiated at the Université Grenoble Alpes 18 months earlier. But the online context in which it took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many other events were postponed until better times, actually provided new insights into the complex and varied modes of practicing hospitality. The #50 issue of the Journal goes to press as the return of the Taliban in Afghanistan and the ongoing war in Ukraine have pushed many to leave their homes and seek refuge in Europe and elsewhere in the past year, creating new situations in which hospitality is questioned and seems once again inseparable from issues of hostility.
