Federica Gregoratto is lecturer in philosophy in the School of Humanities and Social Science of the University of St Gall. Before joining the department in September 2015, she earned a PhD in philosophy from Ca’ Foscari University, Venice (2012) and was postdoc research fellow at the Cluster of Excellence ‘Normative Orders’ at Goethe University, Frankfurt a.M.

She has published in English, German, French and Italian on a variety of topics in social and political philosophy, such as the philosophy of love and sex, critical theory (especially Habermas and Adorno), pragmatism (especially Dewey and Addams), recognition and power theories, debt-guilt debates, gender and intersectionalist studies. One of her recent articles was titled ‘Love is a Losing Game: Power and Exploitation in Romantic Relationships’, published in The Journal of Political Power, 10:3, 2018.
