[Webinar] American Anthropological Association - COVID-19: Responses from Around the Globe

On April 2, I joined an "online conversation" on the COVID-19 pandemic to share the experiences in the Philippines up to that point - identifying an initial period of panic, followed by complacency and finally a dramatic lockdown that the sociologist Randy David called "optics of power". In that same webinar that was moderated by Kristin Hedges, medical anthropologists Davide Barbieri (University of Ferrara, Italy) and Saša Missoni (Institute for Anthropological Research, Zagreb, Croatia) likewise shared experiences from their countries. 

The webinar was hosted by the American Anthropological Association and presented by the Society for Medical Anthropology’s Anthropological Responses to Health Emergencies interest group (ARHE), in cooperation with the IUAES Commission on Medical Anthropology and Epidemiology, and the EASA Medical Anthropology Network.
