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 this first lecture we will explore the political and social impacts of the virus. What has already changed in response to the crisis and what will our society look like when the pandemic is over? To answer these questions and many more you will hear from: David Galbreath, Professor of International Security, Nick Pearce, Professor of Public Policy and Jennifer Thomson, Lecturer in Comparative Politics. The discussion will be hosted by Professor Brad Evans.

You can join the live lecture from 14:00 – 15:00 on Friday 15 May 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.
