Jayati Ghosh, UMass Amherst

With financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences’ International Keynote Speakers Support Fund

CASID is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for our 2022 Conference will be the renowned development economist Professor Jayati Ghosh, University of Massachusetts Amherst. From public health, unemployment and care work to vaccine apartheid, international aid and cash transfers, Professor Ghosh has offered consistent critical engagement with the myriad impacts of COVID-19 and responses to it around the world. Re-focusing our attention on crucial aspects of the global political economy which have mediated these impacts and responses— including inequality, debt, climate change, labour and uneven capitalist development and crisis—Ghosh has been an indispensable critical voice holding politicians, capital and the scientific community to account throughout this unprecedented period. Ghosh will focus her remarks on the innumerable, enduring and widening inequalities which have characterized the global pandemic and the theoretical and practical possibilities for transforming the ongoing response to it and what may come in its wake. This event will be in English with simultaneous interpretation in French and will be closed captioned.
