Course description

The course is a rapid response to the recent (2019/2020) epidemics of Covid-19 viral disease that evolved into pandemics over the early months of 2020. It draws on the literature and scholarship in health sociology as well as public health scholarship, cultural studies, communication studies and political science. The students analyze the social context that led to the spread of the disease, the political responses and cultural consequences of the pandemics. It uses the scholarship on the networked and globalized world in order to criticize the modernity from the perspective of Ulrich Beck’s sociology of risk.
