Dr Stephanie Sodero (Lancaster University, Centre for Mobilities Research): Circulating Blood

Dr Stephanie Sodero - Circulating Blood

Abstract

How do we move things when it really matters? In this talk, I illustrate the complex vein-to-vein journey entailed in routine blood donation in Canada. Then, focusing on the UK, I examine events, such as the Manchester Arena bombing, which challenge the national blood system. Finally, I theorize 'vital mobilities' reflecting on how this concept may be of use in the face of infrastructure disruption and carbon constraint.
