State (and) Power in the Pandemic

, -

Online

The online workshop series “Anthropologies and Securities in the Pandemic” draws on various anthropologies, civil society and practitioners around the topic of security amidst these sanitary, social, political, economic and other crises. 

Between COVID-19 and social mobilisations, the year 2020 has witnessed unprecedented shifts in security discourses, practices and configurations on local, national and global levels. The online workshop series “Anthropologies and Securities in the Pandemic” draws on various anthropologies, civil society and practitioners around the topic of security amidst these sanitary, social, political, economic and other crises. The outcome will be the creation of an interactive online platform that seeks to cultivate a systematic and long-term dialogue between the different anthropology networks.

This series is hosted by the CCDP of the Graduate Institute Geneva, and sponsored by the GANGS-project.

The second session of this workshop series “State (and) Power in the Pandemic” will take place on February 25, 2021.
