Genomic trans-biopolitics
Genomic trans-biopolitics: Why more-than-human geography is critical amid the COVID-19 pandemic

The rapidity of technological change underpins the centrality of genomes in framing COVID-19 problems and proposals for remedies. We counter such framings through a critical perspective that seeks to infuse more-than-human geographies into public health.

Speakers:

Gwendolyn Blue is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Calgary.

Melanie Rock is an Associate Professor in Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary.

This presentation draws mainly on a recent open-access publication in a COVID-19 special issue of Dialogues in Human Geography.

Jul 24, 2020 12:00 PM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
