Objectives
THIS COURSE EMBRACES A CRITICAL APPROACH TO ALL THOSE SOCIO-ECONOMIC PROCESSES THAT HAVE DRIVEN THE VERY DEFINITION OF CONTEMPORARY SUBJECTIVITY. IN THIS PERSPECTIVE, VARIOUS SOCIAL THEORIES FOCUSED ON THE NEOLIBERALISM/SUBJECTIVITY NEXUS, AS WELL AS METHODOLOGIES EMPLOYED IN THE ANALYSIS, WILL BE THOROUGHLY ADDRESSED. RISK, FLEXIBILITY, DISCIPLINE: WORK WILL BE STUDIED WITHIN ITS BROADER CULTURAL DIMENSION, I.E. AS A SOCIAL PHENOMENON NOT LIMITED TO THE PRODUCTION DOMAIN, BUT AFFECTING ALL SUBJECTS’ LIVES INVOLVED IN THE WORKING PROCESS.
KNOWLEDGE AND COMPREHENSION
THE COURSE IS DESIGNED TO ENABLE PARTICIPANTS ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE OF THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL ASPECTS RELATED TO NEO-LIBERALISM AND CONTEMPORARY FORMS OF SUBJECTIVITY. IT IS ALSO FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING STUDENTS’ COMPREHENSION OF ACADEMIC LITERATURE AND ITS RELEVANCE IN TODAY’S SOCIAL WORLD.
COMPETENCE IN APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
BY THE END OF THE COURSE, PARTICIPANTS WILL BE IN THE POSITION TO APPLY THEIR ACQUIRED THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE TO A RANGE OF ISSUES ARISING FROM NEO-LIBERAL POLICIES AND ALSO RELATED TO THE SPHERE OF SUBJECTIVITY, PROVIDING A CRITICAL AND EMPIRICALLY BASED VIEW OF THEM, PROPERLY ELABORATED IN RESEARCH REPORTS, ESSAYS AND ORAL PRESENTATIONS THROUGH WHICH THEY COULD ADVANCE ORIGINAL AND INNOVATIVE HYPOTHESES AND INTERPRETATIONS.

THE GOAL OF THIS COURSE IS TO HIGHLIGHT THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE ORGANISATION OF SOCIETY MIRRORS WORK’S ORGANISATION AND, THEREFORE, HOW WORK COULD SHAPE AND AFFECT THE ENTIRE HUMAN CONDITION. IN THIS PERSPECTIVE, THE CULTURAL PROCESSES THAT HAVE LED FROM THE FORDIST PRODUCTION SYSTEM TO THE POST-FORDIST ONE IN A GLOBALISATION ERA WILL BE CRITICALLY EXAMINED.
TO THIS END, CLASSICAL SOCIAL THEORIES WHICH HAVE FORMULATED WORK’ S CONNECTION TO SOCIETY, AS WELL AS THIS LATTER’S LINK TO THE FORDIST ORGANISATION OF WORK, WILL FIRST BE INVESTIGATED.
THEN, CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL THEORIES, THAT HAVE IDENTIFIED BOTH THE OBJECTIVE REASONS FOR THE TRANSITION FROM FORDISM TO POST-FORDISM (BOTH HISTORICAL AND ECONOMIC) AND SUBJECTIVE CONSEQUENCES (PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EXISTENTIAL) ON THE SOCIAL ACTORS’ LIVES, FROM PRECARIOUSNESS TO THE EMERGENCE OF CULTURES BASED ON SELFISHNESS, COMPETITION AND EFFICIENCY, WILL BE THOROUGHLY ANALYSED.
IN CONCLUSION, AS FOR THE ITALIAN SOCIETY AND THE ORGANISATION OF CULTURAL WORK, THERE WILL BE A FOCUS ON THOSE NARRATIVES THAT HAVE MANAGED TO CAPTURE THE SHAPING DYNAMICS OF PRECARIOUSNESS.
Teaching Methods
THIS COURSE IS COMPOSED OF LECTURES THAT WILL ENABLE PARTICIPANTS TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH THE MAIN CRITICAL SOCIAL THEORIES ON ALIENATED LABOUR, FORDISM AND NEO-LIBERALISM.
Verification of learning
THE FINAL EXAMINATION IS AN ORAL TEST AIMED AT VERIFYING THE SUCCESSFUL UNDERSTANDING OF THEORIES, METHODS AND CASE STUDIES AS WELL AS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROPER CRITICAL ATTITUDE.
