Thinking through the ‘Biosocial’: Rhythmic Reflections in Pandemic Times

This article is part of the series:

Much has been written of late on the ‘biosocial’ in the social sciences and humanities — see for example Ingold (2013), Meloni et al (2016), Lloyd and Muller (2018) — including postings in Somatosphere (Béhague 2020Meloni 2014).
