The COVID world is certainly different from the worlds preceding it. The Pandemic has impacted how we see the world, how we interact with one another, how we understand State role and policies, and made race and gender-based health inequalities all the more visible.
This series of discussions applies interdisciplinary medical-humanities lens to the pandemic. Over the course of fall and spring semesters, we will discuss various issues ranging from health policy and public health, to race, gender and sexuality and how they impact the handling of the pandemic. We will pay special attention to question of race, gender and sexuality, and to issues related to economic inequalities and systemic racism, and will see how the pandemic impacted, and was affected by local and global political structures.
Join us online on Wednesday, October 21, at 5:00 pm for the first lecture and an introduction to the series with Ahmed Ragab, Richmond Visiting Professor. RSVP to kmb5 to receive the Zoom link.
