Anthropological Contributions to the Covid-19 Crisis

A VIRTUAL SEMINAR SERIES BY THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSITUTE

Thursday 23 July 2020 at 3pm (BST)

Lockdown: Sociality, Materiality and Placemaking
Dr Maruška Svašek, Queen’s University Belfast

Drawing on previous research into human mobility, emotional interaction and material mediation (Svašek 2018; 2016; 2012a; 2012b; Svašek and Komarova 2018), this talk explores how the current Coronavirus Crisis is influencing relations between people, places and things. How do people, many of them self-isolating, (fail to) create and negotiate sociality and well-being? In the process, how do material objects, including consumption goods, communication devices, and travel documents afford and mediate movements within, between and beyond people’s dwellings?
