World after COVID SACPA topic

By Jensen, Randy on June 4, 2020.


As the Covid-19 pandemic continues its relentless path across the world, politicians, policy makers and pundits have begun thinking of the world that comes after. What are likely to be the short-, medium- and long-term impacts on society resulting from Covid-19? How will it change the economy, politics and society at large? Which of these will be temporary and which more permanent?

Trevor Harrison will explore some of these possible changes during today’s Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs YouTube presentation.

Harrison is a professor of sociology at the University of Lethbridge and director of the Parkland Institute. He was born and raised in Edmonton. His broad areas of specialty include political sociology, political economy and public policy. In addition to numerous journal articles and book chapters, Harrison is the author, co-author, or co-editor of nine books. His op-ed columns frequently appear in both local and national newspapers.

Today’s presentation will take place at 10 a.m. on the YouTube Live link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opZaLsvhgFg.
