Francesca Coin currently works as a sociology researcher at Cà Foscari University of Venice, Italy.
Trained into politics in her late teens from a bordiguist scholar, she spent the rest of her life searching for horizontal answers to the quest for collective freedom. She lived in the US South-East throught the George W. Bush Administration, as anti-war Iraq Veterans, old Black Panther women and Indigenous leaders gave voice to the anti-war movement. In 2004 she started working with a grassroots Mexican union that organizes migrant farmer-workers across the US-Mexico Border. In those years her main interest was indigenous resistance and the quest for the land, which eventually lead to a time of pilgrimages to India and to an inspiration for campesino movements and bramacharia.
She moved back to Italy at the start of 2008. At the moment her reserach lies at the intersection between the economic crisis and the constellation of movements intertwining strategies for global transformation.
She wrote Il Produttore Consumato (2006) and is currently working at the manuscript Revol/Teen Europe. She is in the editorial board of LOOP.
