World after Covid: historical analysis of how the world copes with post-pandemic life

23 de mayo 2022
Pandemics and plagues have had profound consequences for human society and its development, and, as COVID-19 has graphically demonstrated, the 21st century is no exception. Such moments, and their aftermath, can generate intense political, social, cultural and economic change. They might also be perceived as marking a significant rupture from preceding decades by the people who live through them.  Comparing contemporary responses to COVID with precedents such as the 1918 influenza pandemic, this talk situates these 21st century concerns in the broader context of the ‘long twentieth century’ and questions whether it should indeed be seen as marking a permanent break or boundary between the world before and after COVID.
