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)!

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