Paolo Bartoloni (The University of Sydney)

The Casualisation of Love: Emotions, the Economy and Employment in 
Contemporary Italy

Abstract: It is obvious that the question of how we love and what we 
mean by love in post-industrial societies cannot be separated from the 
question of how we work and what we mean by work (Kipnis, 2003). The 
very transformation of workplace semantics, stressing the significance 
of notions such as “no long term”, and employment strategies such as 
those based on the value of “weak ties” (Sennett, 1998) appear to be 
directly transferable to the emotional sphere. If it is true that we are 
in the age of “impatient capital” (Sennett, 1998), meaning the desire 
for rapid returns, it might also be true that we are in the age of 
“impatient love”, meaning the demand for quickly gratifying and 
consuming passion.

Bio: Paolo Bartoloni teaches Italian and Comparative Literature at the 
University of Sydney. He is the author of The Cultures of Exile, 
Translation and Writing (Purdue University Press, 2008), and

on Comparative Literature (Bundoora: La Trobe University, 2006), and
