This is the second seminar in our series of IAG events for members. A recording of this seminar will be made available for the general public through the IAG webpage.
COVID-19 and Geography: what it means for our sense of place
In this public lecture, Associate Professor David Bissell will explain how geography offers important ideas to better understand what’s happening to our sense of place in COVID-19, complementing
the scientific understandings provided by epidemiologists and public health experts. David will explain how geographical ideas relating to place and mobility can help us make sense of our current situation and what we might be feeling. These geographical ideas
will also provide us with important political tools to identify the new forms of inequality and hardship that are unfolding, prompting questions about how we should collectively respond to shape the future of place.
