Anna Su, Keeping the Faith During a Pandemic: Religion and COVID-19 (The Ethics of COVID)

Ethics of COVID

Join the Centre for Ethics for The Ethics of COVID, an interdisciplinary series of online events featuring short video takes on the ethical dimensions of the COVID crisis.

Keeping the Faith During a Pandemic: Religion and COVID-19

In this brief talk, I discuss how religion and religious liberty has been shaping comparative legal and policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. I also examine some of the arguments underlying the cases filed by churches against closures in US and Europe. I argue both religious communities and the outside world will have to adapt to our new reality as we urgently acknowledge how the current pandemic highlights the need for a life beyond bare existence.

This is an online event. It will be live streamed on the Centre for Ethics YouTube Channel at 3pm, Monday, June 8. Channel subscribers will receive a notification at the start of the live stream.
