Corona perspectives: Who is saving the world from the Covid-19 pandemic?
See this interview in Dissident Magazine with Tithi Bhattacharya, editor of the book Social Reproduction Theory: Remapping Class, Recentering Oppression (Pluto Press, 2017). Bhattacharya discusses how the rapid spread of Covid-19 has illuminated the ordinarily unacknowledged forms of labour - often performed by women, people of colour and marginalised groups - on which the operation of society depends.

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.
