5. Diminishing Constructions: The Work of Exposure in Pandemic Times

share
TEILEN

Abstract

Across the world, the coronavirus pandemic has brought the concept of exposure to the forefront of our everyday and political awareness. The air that we breathe in and out, the surfaces that we touch, and the spaces that we share have all become sites of anxious reflection and intervention. These concerns have become especially pressing in the realm of work, where the necessity of earning a livelihood forces workers to cede varying levels of control over whom they come in contact with and how.
