Keynote Speaker – Federica Giardini

Ecology and Economy. Feminist perspectives

Professor Federica Giardini is a philosopher and feminist activist. Her research uses difference as an operator to address some of the main themes of contemporary political philosophy, from the relations of obedience/disobedience to the actions and relations of commoning and to the extension of the political sphere to the order of relations between human and non-human.
Taking advantage of a feminist and philosophical approach to the question means considering the dominant concepts not as necessary but in the plurality of their genealogies and tracking alternative possibilities. A feminist philosophical approach can lead us to redefine the issues at stake starting from some key concepts such as „value“, „measure“ and „metabolism“.
