LSS: Alex Christyannopoulos: Is the Pandemic a War?

Description: ZOOM TALK - Alex Christyannopoulos


The COVID-19 emergency is often described using the language of war. Alex Christoyannopoulos argues that this is misleading, that we should be attentive to the interests it serves, and that it limits our political horizon beyond COVID. In this Zoom session, he will summarise and lead a discussion of these arguments.

Alex Christoyannopoulos is Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at Loughborough University. He is the author of Christian Anarchism (Imprint Academic, 2010), Tolstoy’s Political Thought (Routledge, 2020) as well as various journal articles and book chapters on religious anarchism and on Leo Tolstoy. A full list of publications is available via https://sites.google.com/site/christoyannopoulos/publications-by-theme. He also runs this site on which he publishes top essays from his students: https://socratichive.wordpress.com/.
