Aimilia Voulvouli and Alexandros Kioupkiolis from the Heteropolitics team, along with Maribel Casas-Cortes, will host this panel on alternative politics, ethnographies and the commons, fleshing out ideas we have been discussing and developing both theoretically and in field research on how ethnographies of social mobilizations, grassroots initiatives and new civic practices can help us to re-imagine and remake radical democratic politics in our times.
This is a brief report on the fieldwork in Bologna, Italy, as conducted by the PI: Alter-politics and commons in Bologna 4 -10 June 2018
We post it in a draft form, because it conveys a concise and illustrative idea of our approach, containing some preliminary conclusions of Heteropolitical research and some interesting points about the commons and the political in the contemporary Italian context.
Illuminating, critical and constructive discussion of how the law is implicated in the promotion of alternative politics of the commons in the contemporary Italian context by leading scholars engaged in the field:
In 10-12 July 2018, the first scheduled workshop of Heteropolitics took place at the University of Torino, consisting of the main research team of the project (A. Vesco, M. Zechner, A.Voulvouli, A. Kioupkiolis) and six participants, who are researchers, academics and activists.
The workshop discussed mainly contemporary social movements and civic politics in Italy, as well as the relationship between law, politics and the promotion of the commons in the Italian context.
Alexandros Kioupkiolis and Antonio Vesco from Heteropolitics research group participated last week in the Commons & Cities workshop at Teatro dell’Asilo in Naples.
