Urban Political Podcast: Inequalities of the Lockdown (AfterCorona #2)

Talja Blokland
9. April 2020

Drawing on her understanding of community as an urban practice and her recent research on social and educational inequalities in Berlin, Talja Blokland underlines how the lockdown exacerbates inequalities in view of labor, education, and social capital. She presents her argument why digital media cannot replace the vital functions that social interactions in physical space play for addressing everyday concerns. And rather than celebrating the current moment of homeschooling as an alternative pedagogy, Talja exposes a highly critical view of how homeschooling deepens educational inequalities.
