Abstract:
The Coronavirus pandemic strikingly pictured the globe as an incredible compression of time and space and revealed dysfunctional state(s) of the world, of living beings and of advanced-liberal democracies where the space of the public and the private have been profoundly mediated and unsettled by fields of science and technology.
The aim of my project is to investigate the material and moral conditions of the epidemic where of science, technocracy and politics articulate news ways of understanding and governing life and death, public health and the body.
The project entails a multi-sited ethnographic study between Italy and Switzerland to follow biographical experiences of Covid-19 survivors and related to victims, scientific and political authorities, social life of material objects and to explore bio-social spaces to disentangle the networked connectivity between local and global governance, material and moral understandings.
