Caitlin Berrigan presents and discusses her essay Atmospheres of the Undead: Living with Viruses, Loneliness, and Neoliberalism

Caitlin Berrigan's essay narrates how living with a virus reveals the structural inequalities of profit-oriented biomedicine, and its implications for the current coronavirus pandemic. Link:

The 2020 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to three scientists who helped identify the hepatitis C virus, and whose patented innovations privatized research on a disease that kills a half million people each year, and led to a dramatic shift in global drug pricing; "Setting a price for the cure of HCV was the golden spike that has since emboldened pharmaceutical companies to accelerate ever higher prices for “life-saving” treatments and cures.“
