Dario Cositore is a cotutelle PhD candidate at two universities. He studies History with specialisation in Economics and Economic Institutions at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, and Political Philosophy with a focus on critical theories of the state at the University of Naples ‘Federico II’ in Italy. His academic training is rooted in Marxist logic and epistemology, as well as in the critique of political economy and the state. Dario’s doctoral project concerns ‘Late Imperialism’. He investigates the development of the productive forces that brought about a change in production relations since the era of fluctuating exchange rates. In doing so, Dario grafts himself into the contemporary debate about economic, political, and environmental transformations.
