Social resilience webinar series: Social Resilience, Neoliberalism, and Socioeconomic Crises
During the fall of 2021, the Society for Critical Studies of Crisis (SCSC) will focus on social resilience in crisis times. The webinar series is the result of a collaboration between the SCSC and the Social Resilience Theme launched by the Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University.
Webinar 2 of 5: Social Resilience, Neoliberalism, and Socioeconomic Crises
What kind of a lens does neoliberalism offer for examining the relationship between social resilience and sociopolitical/environmental/economic crises?
What does it mean to be resilient in the face of a crisis and how does the neoliberal discourse shape the way we construct our understandings of resilience, adversity, and vulnerability?
This seminar offers an interdisciplinary exploration of these questions by three established scholars:
- Roberto Barrios (University of New Orleans)
- Julian Reid (University of Lapland)
- Paz Martín (Complutense University of Madrid)
The seminar is hosted by Sara Kauko, a postdoctoral researcher at Lund University.
The Society for Critical Studies of Crisis (SCSC) is the culmination of more than two years of inter-disciplinary work at Lund University supported by the Pufendorf Institute through an Advanced Study Group and a CRISIS Theme. These initiatives were a response to urgent calls for political action and ethical calls for more inclusive and efficient models for crisis prevention, mitigation, and restoration.
The SCSC is a non-profit Lund University-based association which was launched at the Symposium on Critical Explorations of Crisis: Politics, Precariousness, and Potentialities in 2019. It provides a platform for members’ engagement, both individuals and institutions with an interest in critical crisis studies. Membership in the SCSC is free. An annual general meeting will be held.
