Episode 0 - Launching Pandemic Dialogues
Mar 30th, 2020 by Pandemic Dialogues
In response to the global pandemic of COVID-19, Arizona State University professors Trevor Shelley and Luke Perez begin a multi-part discussion of Albert Camus' Nobel Prize winning novel "The Plague." Written in the 1940s, Camus viewed medical disease as an analogue for understanding the decline of political order. Trevor and Luke discuss the ways in which the COVID-19 has led many people to look to literature as a way to understand how the fabric of our social world is woven.
