Peking University and University of Chicago Joint Lecture Series: Promoting Skills to Promote Social Mobility
10:00 am–12:00 pm
As the bubonic plague made its way westward from China in the 14th century, Christians, Muslims, and Jews in its path thought anxiously about what practices of public health and of piety might save them. In the 21st century, as COVID-19 spreads (much more rapidly) around the globe, we see similar debates over public health and religion. In this virtual Harper Lecture, Divinity School dean David Nirenberg will compare his research on reactions to the Black Death in the Middle Ages with the results of polling on religion and COVID in the United States today.
Join the IOP as we welcome U.S. Ambassador to China and former Governor of Iowa Terry Branstad for a conversation on the COVID-19 pandemic and leadership in times of crisis. Dr. Elizabeth Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director, Asia Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, will moderate the discussion and will explore the role of U.S. diplomacy during the COVID-19 outbreak, and Ambassador Branstad’s advice for careers in public office and leadership roles.
The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated the profound inequalities underpinning institutional and social structures the world over, reflected not only in which populations have suffered the brunt of infections and mortality, but also in its far-reaching social and economic disruptions. To what exent have the pandemic and governments' responses to it reflected and reproduced differential access to citizenship rights across different societal groups -- from access to health care and policies to mitigate economic distress, to the ability to engage in civil, political, and social life? As the brunt of this pandemic has now come to be felt most acutely in the Americas, join us for a conversation with advocates and activists from Cali, Chicago, and Port-au-Prince about the impact of COVID-19 on their cities, and the strategies to support affected communities.
