Corona und Islam

Teilnehmende Medienbeobachtung

Aus verschiedenen Gründen bietet Covid-19 wieder Anlass für Hetze. Der Kommentar ist unter anderem Titel in der Wiener Zeitung am 6. 5. 2021, S. 22 erschienen.

anthro{dendum}

Photo credit: Lehi Sanchez (APTNNEWS.CA) UPDATED 5/6/2021 Today, May 5, 2021, people across the United States will wear red in recognition of missing and/or murdered American Indian (Indigenous) women. They will type #MMIW, #MMIWG or something similar in their social media feeds. If they are one of a few American Indians in their organizations, they may be asked (a bit ironically) to make special statements about missing American Indian peoples. Why does “MMIW” exist?

Climate Change and COVID-19: Online Learning and Experiments in Seeing the World Anew

anthro{dendum}

By Adam Fleischmann The site is easy to access. Just a short walk and I’m there, immediately confronted with two large rectangular windows. The large window up high and on the right is mostly opaque, save one dominating feature: a single, dark line scorches across its surface like a comet’s tail, bottom left to top right. The window on the left is less subdued, less ominous. Graceful curving layers of color arc to the right and skyward, almost topographical in {+}

How a legacy of colonialism hinders vaccination efforts in Indigenous communities

anthro{dendum}

By Soham Govande Today, hopes are held high that the COVID-19 vaccine will gradually bring an end to the pandemic.

Hence, vaccination efforts in these communities must be successful to prevent further damage. Yet, the lack of trust between Indigenous communities and governmental programs stands as a significant challenge to overcome. Health Disparities in Indigenous Communities Why is vaccination so {+}
