The COVID Pandemic: A Perfect Storm of Capitalist Irrationality and Injustice With Dr. Nancy Fraser
An Elaine Stavro Distinguished Visiting Scholar  

Dr. Nancy Fraser
Philosopher, Professor & Author

The COVID-19 pandemic has diagnosed the deepseated dysfunctionality of capitalism. The pandemic is a perfect storm that discloses all our system's multiple, intertwined contradictions - ecological, political, social and economic. 

Join Nancy Fraser as she shifts the focus to a systemic level and discusses the fault lines and the system that generates those fault lines. 

Dr. Nancy Fraser is the Henry A. and Louise Loeb Professor at the New School for Social Research and a member of the editorial committee of New Left Review. Trained as a philosopher, she specializes in critical social theory and political philosophy. Her newest book is Cannibal Capitalism (forthcoming in 2022).
