The OSU School of Language, Culture and Society Anthropology Lecture Series presents "All Lives Don't Matter and Democracy is Under Assault - A Perspective on Convergent Pandemics" with guest lecturer Faye Harrison from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
About the talk: Using a multifocal lens crafted with tools from several recent trends in anthropology, this lecture offers a critical perspective on the mutually constitutive and overlapping crises of public health, race relations, immigration control, economic disparity, and political leadership that have adversely affected the sociopolitical climate in U.S. society--once touted as a paragon of democracy and an exemplar for democratization throughout the world. The main foci for the analysis will be the triple pandemics of COVID-19, racism and the erosion of political legitimacy and accountability.
Free and open to all.
