The Covid Condition is an open discussion group, building on last year’s experimental Digital Condition group. For each meeting there will be a short article and a series of questions posed in advance, with the session being an open forum for raising and reflected on related issues. Participants are encouraged to write short reflections for the CPGJ blog but these are entirely optional.
Meeting 1: time/date (tbc)
You already live in quarantine, by Ian Bogost
