Build Back Better? Health, Disability, and the Future of Work Post-COVID

This symposium aims to address the critical junctures of health, disability, and work at the heart of the domestic policy response to COVID-19, including: the promotion of capital to the exclusion and detriment of individual health; the disregard for vulnerable individuals; the workplace as a locus of disease; the failure to protect and accommodate workers; the pandemic as a mass disabling event; and the potential (or incapacity) for the law to make workplaces healthier and more accessible to people with disabilities.

The symposium is edited by Chloe Reichel, Marissa Mery, and Michael Ashley Stein.
