Skrócony opis:

The class makes a concise introduction into the topic of governing with crisis and preparing for unexpected events and emergencies in contemporary society. It tackles crises and emergencies from a perspective that concerns crisis-talk, rhetoric, reproduction of power relations, forms of knowledge and patterns of response that resemble failure-related processes. It singles out mechanisms of governance and shows that preparation and waiting for projected emergencies constitute one of the main forms of coping with crises today. The empirical part builds on shared experiences, interpretations and anticipations of crises from economic, mobility, ecological, and public health domains.

Pełny opis:

The class makes a concise introduction into the topic of governing with crisis and preparing for unexpected events and emergencies in contemporary society. It tackles crises and emergencies from a perspective that concerns crisis-talk, rhetoric, reproduction of power relations, forms of knowledge and patterns of response that resemble failure-related processes. It singles out mechanisms of governance and shows that preparation and waiting for projected emergencies constitute one of the main forms of coping with crises today. The empirical part builds on shared experiences, interpretations and anticipations of crises from economic, mobility, ecological, and public health domains.

The class discusses how the scholar interpretations and calls for contributions in relation to crises and emergencies (the refugee crisis and COVID-19 included) usually align two realities. The preparation and prevention, on the one hand. The economic and social implications of the crises, on the other hand. The class shows that these two dimensions are quite intermingled. The projection of consequences is the basis of activities of preparation, while preparation leads to reification of consequences, processes of prioritization and legitimization of activities.

Much of the coping with the contemporary crises, as well as measure taken by political actors are projective and legitimized with regard to the anticipated potential effects of the crises. Rendering preparation as a process of study in social sciences is essential in order to capture these new dynamics and develop analytical frameworks for capturing their implications as well as interaction with other processes – such as contestation of policy responses.

The class tackles topics such as:

Crises as failures, uncontrollability

Crises and emotions

Crises and ignorance

Crises and forms of knowledge

Coping, preparation

What does Covid-2019 bring new? Old and new crisis-prone domains
