Author • Caponeu Team Member • Scholar

German Primera lectures Philosophy and Politics at the University of Brighton. He serves as the deputy director of the Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics, and Ethics (CAPPE) and is an editor for the journals Contemporary Political Theory (CPT) and the Journal of Italian Philosophy. His research focuses on French and Italian contemporary philosophy and politics, Black studies, and Biopolitics. He probes the limits of political theories that deny their implication in histories of coloniality and racism, while reworking theories of relational ontology. His book The political Ontology of Giorgio Agamben interrogates the relation between political ontology and violence. He is collaborating with Mark Devenney on a forthcoming book titled Troubling Democracy: On Practices of Care, Fugitivity, and Refusal.
