Francesca Coin

is Professor of Sociology at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, where she teaches Neoliberal Policies and Global Social Movements. She is the Director of the Institute in Austerity, Society and the Commons at the Global Center for Advanced Studies. She has published extensively on the relationship between finance, labor and subjectivity, drawing particularly on the work of Marx, Nietzsche and Deleuze to undo the notion of subjectivity in the neoliberal world. Currently, she is based in Athens where she is doing research on the impact of austerity on life in Greece. The tension between austerity and the commons is the topic of her latest book, Non salvateci più—Οχι áλλο σẃσιμο (2016).
Elisabeth von Samsonow (Hg.): Epidemic Subjects—Radical Ontology

Modern philosophy continues to grapple with the idea of subjectivity—and, as the concept of subjectivity has been refined and redefined, the struggle has spread to the ways we conceive of sovereignty, collectivity, nationality, and identity. Yet, in the absence of an authoritative account of these concepts, new ways of thinking have emerged which continue to evolve.
Epidemic Subjects—Radical Ontology brings together a team of contributors who forge a radically inclusive definition of subjectivity. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s concept of the “girl” as a heuristic device for examining modern society, they tie together recent trends in philosophy and offer a concrete way forward from the conception of the “thing” or “object” privileged by new materialism, speculative realism, and other theories of subjectivity.
