Post-Politics in the Era of COVID-19

(p.239) Coda
Re-Imagining Black Women

Nikol G. Alexander-Floyd

NYU Press

A Coda speaks to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis. The Coda discusses how the response to COVID-19 led to a systemic political crisis symptomatic of capitalism under neoliberalism, the same neoliberalism that uses the production of liminal subjects and melodrama as its handmaidens to give it life. It speaks to the need for revolt to secure a future beyond the deadly character of late capitalism.

Keywords:   COVID-19, coronavirus, capitalism, late capitalism, neoliberalism, liminal subjects, melodrama, revolt
