Re: <nettime> CfP: Critical reflections on pandemic politics: left-wing, feminist and anti-racist critiques

- Government propaganda and censorship around lockdown and vaccination
- The role of mass and social media in anti- or pro-lockdown or vaccine propaganda, political polarization and forms of media virality (eg. via covid-19 memes)
- Mandatory vaccine rollouts as assaults to the feminist appeal to bodily autonomy
- Ethical considerations regarding mass experimentation, moral shaming and lateral citizen surveillance
- Teleological and theological narratives of science as salvation (eg. via vaccinations)

All beautiful examples of a "Querfront" discourse where extreme right positions are packaged  in left-wing rhetoric. Not a single point, however, on minorities and vulnerable people and communities endangered by anti-vaccer egoism, and neo-Darwinist politics - for example in the UK, Sweden and the Netherlands, of "herd immunity" through survival of the fittest.

You should invite Dutch experts Willem Engel and Thierry Baudet as keynote speakers.
