Is the Covid-19 Pandemic a “Health Crisis”?
Abstract: We will question the uses of the term “crisis” on the occasion of the Covid 19 pandemic. To do so, we will analyze the discourses of researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences in the media in France, from March 1st 2020 to June 1st 2022. The aim is to understand how the SHS have deconstructed the qualification of the pandemic as a health crisis in order to propose the analysis of a global crisis that affects the relationships between individuals and collectives.
Keywords: Crisis; Pandemic; Capitalism; Individu; Humanities and Social Sciences.
