The current worldwide health crisis is also a crisis of social structures and cultural values. New national and cultural divides are arising, debates on solidarity and economic inequality are omnipresent, fake news are spreading, isolation leads to unprecedented social hardships.
In this lecture series, experts from Cultural Studies and related fields present analyses of these and other aspects of the “Corona Crisis”, provide broader perspectives on various cultures of crisis, and offer insights into cultural practices of coping with them.
The chair group European Culture and Literature is situated in the programme European Languages and Cultures at the University of Groningen. Its main research areas include narratives of crisis, cultural and social change, European crises, and literature and conflict.
