University College London (UCL), -, -, United Kingdom.
Incorporating pandemic public health, social inequalities, geopolitics, conspiracies and beyond, COVID-19 vaccines find themselves at the centre of the most significant debates of our time.
Anthropologists and social scientists have particularly important voices that need to be heard on this matter and are placed in the unique position of watching noteworthy global events unfold before us. As such, UCL Medical Anthropology invites you to engage with unfolding debates on vaccines and the pandemic through the ‘Vaccines in View Seminar Series’.
The online series will run on zoom every Thursday from 5-6pm BST (GMT+1) over the summer term, featuring a different distinguished invited guest each week to discuss vaccines and vaccinations. Together, the series seeks to develop an anthropological overview of the vaccine question and seek to better bring the myriad issues that we face more clearly into view.
