Ethical Futures for a New World?

17 November, 2020, 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

This is an online event.

We have all experienced huge changes in the way we live during the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown; our everyday lives have been turned upside down. But to what extent will life just go back to normal when this is all over? Is there potential to build a better world post-Covid, attempt to rectify inequalities and live a more ethical life?

In this film, a group of Palgrave Macmillan authors working across a range of areas within the humanities give their thoughts on ethical futures, bringing in their own research interests for a broad audience. An international panel of speakers address issues of reducing inequalities, the place of the university and the humanities in a post-Covid world, Black humanism, antiracism, and what our ‘new world’ could, and should, look like in the light of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Presented as a short film, the first showing will take place during the festival and run alongside a live discussion involving panellists where the audience will be invited to ask questions. The film will be freely available to watch for the duration of the festival.

Confirmed panellists: Anthony Pinn (Rice University, USA), Francesca Sobande (University of Cardiff, UK), Zoe Bulaitis (University of Birmingham, UK) and Bruce Mutsvairo (Auburn University, USA).
