They discuss Lisa’s work on sexuality in the middle east and the conflation of norms and ideals in popular culture. They also discuss the establishment of new social norms in the context of COVID19 and how we collectively rally behind new norms that are ostensibly scientific, objective, and factual, but nonetheless cultural and symbolic.
