Join us for this fascinating talk with Dr Adrienne Harris about the The Corona Virus Pandemic in America.


In this talk, Dr Harris will focus on the implications of the pandemic for American culture. Whatever we began to think about a virus to which all were vulnerable, we are finding that divisions of class and race produce radically distinct experiences. Drawing on psychoanalysis, trauma theory, models of intersectionality and the force of political interpellation, she will look at our contemporary moment.
