Fulvia Giachetti is a PhD student in Political Studies at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", where she is enrolled in the doctoral programme of excellence of the School of Advanced Studies (SSAS).
Her research focuses on the conceptual history of neo-liberalism in the two main fields in which the semantic-political category was constructed, namely the philosophies of the neo-liberal order and contemporary critical theories, of which she interrogates the oppositional, tensive relationship, continuities and breaks, working, in particular, on the concepts of order, critique and crisis. Specifically, her research aims to provide a general historical-theoretical reconstruction of a political category that is as central as it is contested and polemical in contemporary political lexicon, and a theoretical investigation into the field of contemporary critical reflection, re-articulated since around the 1970s around the object of neoliberalism, with respect to which its conditions of possibility, exercise and its relationship to crisis are rethought. The provisional title of the research is 'Neoliberalism: history of a polemical concept. Itinerary in the crises between philosophies of order and critical theories'.
Giachetti has conducted research in Paris, at the École Normale Supérieure and at the University of Nanterre. She is editor of the scientific journal Pólemos. Materials of Philosophy and Social Criticism. She graduated in both Bachelor’s and Master's degrees in Philosophy cum laude, in the subjects of History of Theological Doctrines and Theoretical Philosophy respectively (Lorella Cedroni 2020 Degree Prize). She is also interested in theology-politics, post-structuralism, Marxism and post-Marxism.
