Actually, she is research member of the italian national research program “Govering the smart City” hosted in University of Cagliari.Her current researchinterestsarethe process ofthe “urbansmartification” in the context of contemporary capitalism and they articulate around three mains issues: the role of digital technology in the urbanization process, the production of subjectivity and new paradigms of urban economic accumulation.

A critique of the political economy of space and time: the research program of Henri Lefebvre 空间时间的政治经济学批判:列斐伏尔的研究计划

Through a rich and original intellectual activity that crosses the Twentieth Century, Henri Lefebvre elaborated a very interesting research program. At the core of this program there are the interrelated conceptions of space and time wich are conceived as the foundamentals social articulations of contemporary capitalism. Characterized by a sort of “sensitive approach” to the reality, Lefebvre is mainly interested at the micrological dimension of life and society: combining a vitalistic influence of Nietzsche with a historical materialist analytical perspective of Marx, he tries to elaborate a theoretical grid to analyse the “ground zero” of social life – the everydayness in urban context – in order to explain the “mystery” of the social reproduction of society and to formulate a political ontology of transformation possibiliy.

Within this theoretical frame, Lefebvre proposes an original and anticipatory concept of urbanity as historical configuration of capitalism emerging after the industrial age, as a new order of production and social organisation. Forthcoming the perspective of critical urban studies and some orientations of critical human geography, Lefebvre underlines the prominent role of urbanisation process for the constitution of a post-fordist regime of accumulation and for the potential formation of a new political collective subjectivity and democratic experimentation. Reading Lefebvre today – namely in a global perspective – can be very useful in order to elaborate a genealogy of the present and to analyse the actual urban explosion and its contraddictions.

列斐伏尔丰厚而原创的智性活动横跨整个20世纪,由此他钻研出一个极其有趣的研究计划。计划的核心是相互纠缠的时间和空间概念,他将其构想为当代资本主义基本的社会构作(social articulation)。列斐伏尔的特点是以“感性进路”切入现实,他最感兴趣的是生活与社会的显微学维度:结合了尼采的活力论与马克思的历史唯物主义分析视角,列斐伏尔试图编织分析社会生活的“零海拔面”——都市环境中的日常性——的理论网格,从而揭示社会的社会再生产之“神秘”,构造转变之可能性的政治本体论。
