Living together and cities in a time of crisis

French | Open to all | Free | Registration required | Accessible to all | Online (Zoom)

This webinar will address the notion of “living together” in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the possibility of rehabilitating this idea, one which has been overlooked by more than 15 years of identity debates in Québec. We will propose several points of discussion on lockdown and re-opening in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic as a potential for rethinking the social bond. First, we will examine the political models of planning for living together adopted by different States. Secondly, we will attempt to ask how living together matters from a societal perspective and to question the role of cities in rebuilding social ties. Finally, we will propose an exploration of situations and concrete solutions for imagining life after the pandemic.
