Long Haulers: The COVID-19 Aftereffects That Will Continue to Reverberate Globally
Location | TBD
Thomas Wright’s recent book “Aftershocks” (written with Colin Kahl) offers a riveting and comprehensive account of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the strangest and most consequential years on record. He draws on his research for this book in a program with the Vail Symposium to tell the story of how nationalism and major power rivalries constrained the response to the worst pandemic in a century. The COVID-19 crisis exposed the limits of the old international order; Wright will explore how the reverberations from COVID-19 will be felt for years to come.
The Vail Symposium is a grassroots, non-profit organization which provides educational programs for the Vail Valley community. These are intended to be thought-provoking, diverse and affordable events for all.
