Participants from different countries, backgrounds, focuses, and involvement in COVID will discuss how the pandemic has exploited and magnified social and structural inequalities, and reflect on applied anthropology’s role. Lenore Manderson will moderate. Judith Freidenberg, Carlos Velez-Ibanez, and Robyn Eversole of SfAA Global will interpret to enable Spanish and Portuguese speakers. The roundtable coincides with the publication of Viral Loads: Anthropologies of emergency in the time of COVID-19, (eds. Manderson, Burke and Wahlburg), which will be able to be downloaded for free.
