SEMINAR SERIES – Vaccines in View

Datum
29. April – 10. April 2021 

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.
