Italian political philosopher Franco Berardi will lecture on "The Rise of the Cognitariat: Cognitive Labor in Search of a Body." Berardi has authored more than 20 books covering topics from Felix Guattari to cyberpunk to media politics. In the 1970s he was an important protagonist of Italy's social protest movement and was involved in such media activism as the creation of Radio Alice, an independent pirate radio station, and the publishing of A/traverso, a political magazine. He teaches at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan.
