In this inaugural event for the University of Edinburgh's Centre for the Study of Modern and Contemporary History's 2020-2023 theme of CRISIS, this panel event will examine the history, meaning, and political uses of “crisis.” In this panel, we will explore some of the work that the concept of crisis does in different contexts and places, including the current Covid-19 crisis. Panellists include: Janet Roitman (New School), Jeremy Adelman (Princeton), David Sepkoski (Illinois), AbdouMaliq Simone (Sheffield), Keren Weitzberg (University College London).
