Seminarium
The Sociology Department Seminar Series invites international and national researchers to present and discuss on-going research.

Presented by Giacomo Loperfido, University of Barcelona.

15:00 - 17:00, Thursday, 19th September 2019

This talk draws on the ethnography and life history of Walter, a successful petty entrepreneur in Veneto, Italy, to reflect upon how his strategy of economic development, and his political engagement with the local society are deeply entangled with one another. Starting from that, I shed light on how the relations of production in the so called Third Italy, are intimately related to the establishment of a specific political-ideological formation, which I term entrepreneurialism.
It is this relation, I argue, that gives shape and meaning to local regimes of truth, redefining social reality and the axioms and principles that govern it. In this new situation, the private is morally praised against the public domain, the economic against the political, the individual against the collective. This is also the context in which the political sphere becomes hijacked into the sphere of the private, paving the way to new geometries of power, and new structures of exploitation.

The research is part of the ERC funded research project “Grassroot Economies: Meaning, Project and Practice in the Pursuit of Livelihood”, University of Barcelona
