Type of grant



How are love, care, and the sticky dependencies among humans, machines and nature played out in the interval between abandoned city centres and digitally mediated gatherings? How can we comprehend the reconfiguration of relationships through the human response to the pandemic as an experience that concerns us all but affects us in different ways? Weaving together cultural history, aesthetics, and urban and digital studies, Touch in the Time of Corona offers a series of essayistic reflections on how the possibilities for touch, touching and being touched, both physically and affectively, are reimagined by the pandemic.
