CONFERENCE

Geographies of Alternative Care: Spaces, Ecologies and Methods international conference (November 26 and 27)

The COVID-19 pandemic has made legible stark inequalities in the global distribution of care. Building on feminist, queer anti-racist perspectives, the conference Geographies of Alternative Care: Spaces, Ecologies, and Methods (November 26-27th 2020) opens an interdisciplinary conversation on three key dimensions of caring: caring for and through spaces; caring across species and scales; caring as a research method. This event brings together a diverse range of voices from academia and activism to explore this urgent topic. Please check the schedule here:

CALL FOR BOOK PROPOSALS

Routledge Book Series – Post-COVID World: Academics, Politics and Society

 Series Editors: Lewis Gordon, Rozena Maart, Epifania Amoo-Adare and Sayan Dey

The biomedical crisis of COVID-19 has opened up a floodgate for other kinds of crisis like communal violence, racial discrimination, geographical hierarchies, socio-political hegemonies, academic exclusivities, etc. These crises are catalyzing massive geo-political shifts of the various epistemological and ontological frameworks of knowledge production across the globe. The shifts are bound to influence patterns of thinking and doing in a Post-COVID era. This book series will focus on various forms of academic, social and political transformations that are expected to take place in a Post-COVID World, with respect to the various crises. The advent of COVID-19, has resulted in major shifts affecting pedagogical frameworks, curricular structures, institutional infrastructures, evaluation patterns, international policies, political ethics, communal relations, gender existence, racial connotations, mental health and physical wellbeing. These are transformations that will continue to take place in a Post-COVID era. Keeping these shifting scenarios at the forefront, this book series will critically analyze various forms of transformation that take place in academic, social and political systems across the globe in a Post-COVID era.
