Global Health: Part 12 in the Pandemic Series

A little over a year ago, the World Health Organization proclaimed COVID-19 as a pandemic, indicating community spread at the global level. Throughout the COVID-year, the distribution of health care resources, medications, tests, vaccines, as well as the disease burden have been different in different sites around the world. In this session, we look at Global COVID and see how the picture is similar or different from the one in the U.S.

Gabriela Soto Laveaga is Professor of the History of Science and Antonio Madero Professor for the Study of Mexico at Harvard University. Her current research interests interrogate knowledge production and circulation between Mexico and India; medical professionals and social movements; and science and development projects in the twentieth century. Jennifer Johnson is Associate Professor of History at Brown University. A historian of Africa, and a specialitist in twentieth-century North Africa, her research explores questions of nationalism, decolonization, human rights, medicine, and international organizations.

This year-long series of Oakley discussions applies an interdisciplinary medical-humanities lens to  the pandemic. Join us on Wednesday, March 31, at 5:00 PM for a discussion about global health in the time of Covid. Email kmb5 for event link.
