In this webinar we examine the ‘percussive effects‘ of the pandemic and how the capacity to respond to the pandemic is uneven along the social fault lines of class, race, and gender. As social institutions, global and local economies, political relations, and everyday social lives are being remade, we highlight how medical anthropology both illuminates the present and warns of COVID-19’s unequal unfolding.
This webinar will be in conversation with Professor Lenore Manderson AM, Distinguished Professor of Public Health and Medical Anthropology, School of Public Health, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa and Honorary Professor, Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, Brown University, USA.
