Lifting the Curtain: How COVID-19 Exposes Inequalities
Friday, April 1, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Join the Department of Anthropology’s online roundtable discussion with Dr. Merrill Singer (University of Connecticut), Dr. Ellen Badone (McMaster University), and Dr. Catherine Bryan (Dalhousie University).
The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the profoundly unequal character of contemporary societies. This discussion will illuminate the inequalities highlighted by COVID-19 locally, nationally and globally, in terms of access to healthcare and to safe working and living conditions; various forms of oppression; and the impacts of labour exploitation, job losses, and labour shortages. Find out what anthropology can offer to help critically analyze the sociocultural and economic impacts of the pandemic.
