Adopting an international perspective informed by social theory, The Face Mask in Covid Times: A Sociomaterial Analysis offers an intriguing investigation of the social, cultural and historical dimensions of face-masking as a practice in the age of Covid.

  • Short and accessible analysis of the sociomaterial dimensions of the face mask in the age of Covid-19
  • Examples from public health advice and campaigns, anti-mask activism, and popular culture
  • The ideal primer for HSS uni courses focusing on Covid-19
