Asia Institute Seminar

“Going Viral: COVID-19 and the response of the International Media”

5.00-7.00 PM

Monday, March 16, 2020

Global and national institutions have been ripped asunder as the COVID-19 crisis has expanded beyond a simple medical challenge to become an ideological and systemic uncertainty about institutions. The entire agenda of finance-based internationalization that has held sway since the end of the Cold War has been drawn into question as the fragility of the current order is made visible. In this seminar, we will discuss the media’s response globally and how the nature of journalism has evolved as a result of institutional changes.  We will also discuss possible new approaches to solving global crises that will move beyond this media-based narcissistic frenzy to pursue science-based global cooperation,
