[Public Lecture] Virginia A. Miralao Exellcence in Research Award (VAMERA) Lecture

On March 2, 2022, as the recipient of the Virginia A. Miralao Exellcence in Research Award (VAMERA) given by the Philippine Social Science Council, I gave a lecture for my winning work entitled “Living Together in Precarious Times: COVID-19 in the Philippines”.  The presentation was based on the essay which was published a book chapter in Viral Loads: Anthropologies of urgency in the time of COVID-19 (UCL Press, 2021) edited by Lenore Manderson, Nancy J. Burke, and Ayo Wahlberg.

In the presentation, which I updated to reflect changes that took place in the country over the past two years, I charted the enduring role of other species in our experience of the pandemic, as well as how the pandemic continues to affect various species and entire ecosystems.
