Corona Perspectives: Naomi Klein on Corona Capitalism

In this video, Naomi Klein is considering the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic will have on American political and economic life, and on neoliberal capitalism.

Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies monitors the Covid-19 pandemic

There is little doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic affects communities and nations across the world in different ways, and that the world’s poor are going to experience this crisis much more keenly than people belonging to affluent communities. As a postcolonial research centre, Linnaeus University Centre for Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies will help monitor the development of the crisis. At the centre's web page above, you will find research and opinion pieces that highlight the dispersed and uneven impact of the crisis in Swedish and global society.

Our aim is that articles that we refer to should be open to the public. However, we cannot guarantee that all articles will be, as media companies' policies and the availability of individual articles may change over time.
