Under the Black Light: Covid in Confinement, April 29, 2020


Episode Six of “Under the Blacklight: The Intersectional Failures that COVID Lays Bare.” The panel on COVID in confinement includes Josie Duffy Rice, Nina A. Kohn, Marc Lamont Hill, Rebecca Nagle, Ravi Ragbir, and Alyosxa Tudor.

“We’ll be diving deep into the spatial distribution of pain, the striking lack of freedom for people in prisons and jails, the lethal negligence taking place in nursing homes, the state-sanctioned violence of ICE, and the nuanced ways that this disease is showing how different populations experience disempowerment as a consequence of confinement. We’ll also explore the politics of disposability, the histories that lead us toward valuing oil stocks over human lives, and the desire for a “liberty” that may well kill our so-called friends and loved ones.  You can read about our panelists, and the series as a whole, here.”
