Network I Organizer Lara Monticelli Garners Marie-Curie Fellowship
Lara Monticelli, co-founder and co-chair of the SASE research network “Alternatives to Capitalism”, has been awarded the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowship. Her research project, funded by the European Commission, will be conducted at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy at Copenhagen Business School where Lara was been appointed Assistant Professor in September 2018. Her Marie Skłodowska-Curie project (2018-2021), titled ‘EcoLabSS – Ecovillages as Laboratories of Sustainability and Social Change’, focuses on the (re)emergence of community-based, prefigurative social movements (e.g. sustainable communities, eco-villages, transition towns, solidarity networks) as living laboratories experimenting with practices of resilience and resistance to environmental, economic, and societal challenges. Lara is especially interested in how these movements re-politicize and re-configure everyday life, thus representing radical attempts to embody the critique to contemporary capitalism and prefigure alternative, sustainable futures. Lara is also involved in a number of parallel research and editorial projects in collaboration with non-governmental organizations like the Global Ecovillage Network and ECOLISE – the European Network for Community Led Initiatives on Climate Change and Sustainability.
