Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the first “Thanatic Ethics” Webinar Series which will run from October 2020 to December 2020. A second series will be organized between January and March 2021. Since our speakers will be presenting from Europe and North America, the times are not ideal for Hong Kong, but we hope some of you can still join us.

The talks in the first series are as follows:

Friday 23 October 2020, 9:30-10:30 GMT (17.30-1830 HKT)
‘The politics of counting migrant deaths in times of crisis’
Antoine Pecoud (Paris 13 University)

Friday 20 November 2020, 13:30-14:30 GMT (21.30-22.30)
‘Invisible Bodies: Refugees, Undocumented Migrants and Asylum Seekers in Canadian Literature’
Srilata Ravi (University of Alberta)

Friday 4 December 2020, 9:30-10:30 GMT (17.30-1830 HKT)
‘Transnational engagements around Senegalese migrants’ death’
Felicien de Heusch (University of Liege)


You will receive individual emails for each talk with the abstract and zoom link in due course.
