BLAME is part of Transmission: A series of five Podcasts on Disease and Pandemics in a Distorted World (2021), a podcast series by Ines Doujak and John Barker on the history of pandemics.
This is about the landless, disease spreading vagabond, with renewed prominence in today’s political discourse; about labour discipline; about infections and contamination, both used as crossover between actual diseases and markers of the political other, the inside and the outside of the body; and about colonial — and class attacks. As in the past a dehumanizing language of disease, parasites, and infestation have entered a political vocabulary directed at migrants and minorities.
