Dr. Sloane McNulty presents "Debt & Parasites: On Viral Ethics" for Critical studies students via zoom
Description: This talk confronts the ethics of debt, arguing how neoliberal policy, viral contagion, and humanism converge in our contemporary moment in the form of the parasite, exposing the violence of the state and capital in their mutual mobilization of responsibility, sacrifice, and austerity.
