In this session, Dr Carlo Caduff will examine the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to provide support for his argument that today’s fear is fueled by mathematical disease modeling, neoliberal health policies, nervous media reporting, and authoritarian longings.
Dr Caduff’s work explores global health at the intersection of science, medicine, media and the state. He is a Reader in the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine, and also serves as the Director of Postgraduate Research Studies and Chair of the Culture, Medicine and Power (CMP) research group. He received his PhD in Anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley. His first book, The Pandemic Perhaps, shows how pandemic influenza became a global threat. His articles on biomedicine, bioscience and biosecurity have appeared in journals such as Cultural Anthropology, Current Anthropology, Critical Inquiry, BioSocieties, Annual Review of Anthropology, Cambridge Anthropology and Anthropological Theory.
