Hazel V. Carby, author of Imperial Intimacies, and Priyamvada Gopal, author of Insurgent Empire, discuss the media responses to Covid-19 and the kinds of discourse that are given a platform, appropriate forms of response and the media more generally relating to who it is doing the writing – as well as looking towards what sorts of new theoretical frameworks we might employ to think about what has happened.

To celebrate 50 years of Verso Books we bring you Verso Live, a new virtual live events programme. We have selected authors to speak on a wide range of subjects including the future of work, what a feminist city might look like, how our virtual spaces have become the ‘new normal’, and how enslaved West Indian women played a distinct role in slave resistance. These events are free and will be live-streamed to Verso’s YouTube and Facebook pages fortnightly on Thursday evenings UK time, as well as being made available to watch after the event has finished.
