What OSA Reads: Pandemic Edition

Those of us looking for more insightful content related to the current pandemic should turn our attention to the Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives, who have been assembling a regularly updated list of articles, interviews, podcasts and books worth your time.

In response to the current situation, Blinken OSA staff are providing recommendations on books with newfound relevance as well as recent articles assessing the lasting impact of earlier health crises, the debate on public safety versus privacy, or how the current situation may be a dress rehearsal for the coming climate crisis. Through this curated selection spanning a wide variety of topics, we can learn not only about the current impact that the coronavirus is having, but discover how society has responded to similar events in the past, or draw conclusions on what we can expect from the future.
