We are delighted to announce that the “Blog Medical Anthropology / Medizinethnologie”, Curare: Journal of Medical Anthropology, the Global South Studies Center Cologne, and boasblogs have jointly launched the new blog series #WitnessingCorona.
We are inviting further contributions of max 2000 words that address questions of:
- social solidarity and moral blaming
- living a life in social and/or physical isolation
- unequal biosocial and/or psychological vulnerabilities
- political-economic implications for healthcare infrastructures
- historically contingent forms, possibilities, and risks of governmental intervention
- and a host of other themes related to the Corona pandemic whose understanding will benefit from a (medical) anthropological perspective.
The contributions may range from theory- or ethnography-based articles to more personally tinged reflections in the form of a think piece. They can be in English or German. Pictures, drawings, small videos etc. are welcome (please provide captions and copyright information)!
