Join us for an online Minerva lecture series to make sense of the coronavirus crisis

The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting everything we do. From our jobs, to our physical and mental health, to the economy, our politics and the climate. All aspects of our daily lives have changed in response to the crisis. To make sense of these uncertain times we are inviting four panels of experts from the University of Bath to share their research and expertise online across four topics: the social and political effects of the virus, the science of the virus, the health and wellbeing impacts and the economic and business impacts. The panellists will also answer your questions about the crisis. Join us for an online Minerva lecture series to make sense of the coronavirus crisis.

In the fourth lecture we will discuss the economic and business impacts of the virus. What effects will the virus have on exchange rates and global financial markets? What does the crisis mean for the workforce and worker exploitation? And how will the NHS and other health systems cope with the economic strains?

To answer these questions and many more you will hear from Andy Crane, Professor in the School of Management, Eleonora Fichera, Reader in the Department of Economics and Bruce Morley, Lecturer in the Department of Economics.

You can join the live lecture from 14:00 – 15:00 on Friday 26 June by registering through Eventbrite. A link will be emailed to you before the event allowing you to view the lecture via Microsoft Teams - no account is required.
