PhD Research

My thesis examines the relationship between labour, time, and power in control societies. More specifically, it focuses on the role that the attention economy plays in post-Fordism from the standpoint of labour and time as mechanisms of social control. In order to explore this, my research relies mainly on Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s schizoanalytic methodology, on Marx's critique of political economy, and on Bernard Stiegler’s analysis of cinematic time.
