The COVID-19 Pandemic Conference Webinar will be held on April 19th, 20th, 21st

SSH conference

The “COVID-19 Pandemic Conference Webinar” will examine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals, communities, countries, and the larger global society from a social scientific perspective. It offers a timely and critical advance in knowledge related to what many believe to be the greatest threat to global ways of being in more than a century. It is imperative that academics take their rightful place alongside medical professionals as the world attempts to figure out how to deal with the current global pandemic, and how society might move forward in the future. This conference webinar represents a response to that imperative.

Sessions will provide critical insights into the ethics and ideologies, inequalities, and changed social understandings that lie at the heart of this pandemic. The focus will be on the ways in which the pandemic has impacted (most often disproportionately) individuals and societies, the successes and failures of means used to combat the virus, and the considerations and future possibilities – both positive and negative – that lie ahead. While the pandemic has brought humanity together in some noteworthy ways, it has also laid bare many of the systemic inequalities that lie at the foundation of our global society. This conference webinar will provide a significant step forward toward better understanding these impacts.
