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 fourth and last workshop of our series will look at "Urban Livelihoods and Everyday Life in Pandemic Times." During this session, speakers will present how the Covid-19 pandemic affected lives at the social and urban margins across the globe. Specifically, they will illustrate how invisibilised sections of society, for instance wage and migrant workers and trans-people of colour from India to Morocco, Italy, the US and Brazil grapple with access to welfare and other state provisions during this current sanitary crisis.
