Open questions

Hi, usually, I have more questions than answers, some small ones, some comprehensive ones. As I know that other people are regularly looking for interesting issues, whether for academic or other reasons, I gonna start collecting them here. Maybe, with further notes on methods or resources. Any questions or collaboration welcome.

Hot issues/ daily politics:

  1. How did plagues or pandemic diseases interact with the development of social structures, norms, or institutions, especially: ideas, methods, and bodies related to surveillance/ state control; with what kind of effect (ideally with regard to the medical problem/ its solution)? Special emphasis might be given to: updating Foucault ('Ueberwachen und Strafen'), the development of technology/ AI, governance schemes in comparison - interesting vision on Covid-19, governance and AI (platform tech) by Benjamin A Bratton
