Event Information

Join for a talk focusing on Delhi's first contact with Covid in 2020, the lockdown, the framing of a "Delhi model" of Covid management, and then its collapse when confronted with the second wave. Learn how political public health is, by situating these processes in the light of the growing majoritarianism and authoritarianism in the polity, as well as the deepening economic crisis. Finally, consider "relational urbanism" or the response of the civil society/collectives, and the learnings related to the meaning of the "public" going forward.
