The Deadly Intersections of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic – initially viewed as ‘an equalizer’ – has resulted in shockingly higher infection and death rates for communities already marginalized by coloniality, race, class, age and gender.

This panel presents the findings of an international research team studying the pandemic’s interaction with national and global structures of power. Discussing the impact of key public health measures implemented in Canada, Australia, Bangladesh, the US and the UK, the presenters identify a number of disturbing trends that are likely to shape the post-pandemic world.
