About this blog

„Witnessing Corona“ is inviting 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 and German. Pictures, drawings, small videos etc. are welcome (please provide captions and copyright information)!

Please send your contributions to witnessingcorona@boasblogs.org or medizinethnologie@gmail.com. We are very much looking forward to your submissions!
