Care for the Polis: Cities, Health, and the Humanities | Urban Infrastructures of Violence

Amy Chazkel
Bernard Hirschhorn Associate Professor of Urban Studies, Columbia University

Jonathan Metzl

This event will take place as a public Zoom panel starting at 3:00 pm. Please REGISTER HERE in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Care for the Polis is an online conference that exists in a multi-temporal and virtual space. The conference is designed to reimagine how medical humanities and public humanities shape, and are shaped by, the city and its diverse publics. In a series of weekly Z-Panels, our invited speakers will discuss the effects of health on the conception of cities and publics—including, in the context of pandemic, the foreclosure of public space and what it means to become an online yet domestic-bound public. Together, we will address emerging concerns such as economic impact and recovery, domesticity and democracy, public care and public reconstruction. 

Z-Panels are open to members of the Care for the Polis Collective and others by pre-registration. To register, please get in touch.
