COVID-19 Lecture Series: "Thinking Through The Pandemic"
A series of panel discussions hosted by the Institute for the Humanities at SFU featuring leading activists and thinkers addressing the short and long emergencies facing our society, including how the pandemic has exacerbated or exposed previously-existing injustices. Topics to be discussed include the climate emergency; the inadequacies of existing public health care systems; big tech, surveillance and policing; as well as how to achieve an economic recovery that reduces rather than widens inequality. In the final session, we will bring together leading figures from movements for systemic change to discuss the lessons from the pandemic for all those interested in building a more just world.
