This panel will generate a conversation across more-than-human geographies and geographies of conservation and the wildlife trade to shed light on the roots of the coronavirus, the politics of responding to it, and how it might reshape human-nonhuman relations.
Questions for panelists include:
1. Roots of COVID-19: Given the information we have, how should we understand the roots of COVID-19? [What frameworks help us understand this crisis and how? What questions should we be asking?]
2. Response: How might COVID-19 and our response to it reshape human-nonhuman interactions?
3. Representation & Justice: How is understanding of COVID-19 and responses to it caught up in questions of representation? What would a more just discourse look like?
4. Further Connections: How could your work more broadly help us understand different facets of the novel coronavirus. Possible topics include:
* Porous and calcified borders and boundaries
* Intimacy and distance between humans and nonhumans
* Debates on environmental destruction, biodiversity, the wildlife trade, etc.
* Inequality, capitalism, and/or colonialism
5. Broader, overarching question: What should a more-than-human research agenda of the covid-19 look like?
