Pandemics: Past, Present and Future aims to collaboratively examine past, present and potential future pandemics from a variety of lenses, including: their interplay with various social/cultural dynamics (racism, concerns over ‘contagion,’ nationalism, colonialism and its legacies, etc.); historical importance; political and economic impact; relationships to structural violence; representation in language, literature, and other forms of media (including online media); ethical questions raised; direct/indirect impacts on health and mental well-being; theoretical implications for understanding states of emergency/states of exception; policy implications; pedagogical implications; issues for governance and citizenship; refugees and borders; international cooperation; religious and faith-based initiatives; media and communications representations and responses; possibilities for social and political mobilization and creative action.
