 When What  Where
Thursday, 23 May 2019, 10:00 to 12:00 Workshop 1: "Grassroots ecologies of value: Environmental conflicts and social reproduction"


The workshop addresses the relevance of a social reproduction framework for approaching the contemporary socio-ecological crisis. Based on research conducted in southern Italy, it will examine the reproductive struggles, livelihood dilemmas and valuation practices that underlie environmental conflicts in the context of heavy industrialization.


* Opened for Master students and PhD as well as guests. Registration is requested on CTS (KSL) or E-Mail (only for guests)

Keynote Lecture: "Valuations of Worth: Privilege, Dignity, and the sense of a Future in Southern Europe under Austerity"

The talk will explore some concepts and logical connections that underwrite the practices that working, precarious and unemployed people use to make sense of austerity and to act so as to remediate or oppose it. The analysis of the ethnographic material gathered during the Grassroots Economics project, provides a view of the complex processes that contribute to produce people’s worth and their social positionalities both in material and symbolic terms.  It shows how people, individually and collectively, will negotiate and struggle around the categories of valuation that affect them and the criteria for evaluation in order to transform them and claim legitimacy for their acts. In a context where the sense of a future is uncertain and volatile, revaluation processes may appear as an active form of political engagement. This talk will present an initial analysis of these issues.

*Everybody is welcome

Friday, 24 May 2019, 09:00 to 11:00 Workshop 2: "Embodying austerity in southern Europe: gendered dispossession, agency and struggles for worth"


This workshop will address the articulation between the body, (re) emergent forms of gendered dispossession and agency in the austerity conjuncture. It will focus on how austerity is experienced and perceived with and through the body; the role of historical and cultural embodied dispositions as livelihood coping strategies in conditions of social reproductive crisis, and, how human agency is conditioned (or enabled) by bodily narratives used as models to justify and legitimate needs, claims and entitlements.


*Opened for Master students and PhD as well as guests. Registration is requested on CTS (KSL) or E-Mail (only for guests).
