A Roundtable on Globalization and COVID-19
Join us for a virtual roundtable "Globalization and Covid-19". Three speakers will be addressing different global angles on Covid-19, including global racism, effects on and resistance of Indigenous peoples, and the relation to global big agriculture. After brief presentations, we plan on a good amount of cross-speaker interaction and time for questions and comments from the audience.
- Ho-Fung Hung, Professor of Sociology, Johns Hopkins University -- SARS, Covid-19, and the "yellow peril"
- Tom Goldtooth, Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) -- inequalities, Covid-19, and resistance of Indigenous People
- Rob Wallace, Co-founder and Program Manager at the Agroecology and Rural Economics Research Corps--Did COVID-19 start in the US or China (or both)?
This will be the first of a series on “The US in the Globe and the Global in the US: a view from the Southeast periphery”
The series is organized by Global Studies with funding from the Haines-Morris Endowment Fund. Additional sponsors include the Center for Global Engagement, the Departments of Sociology, History, Geography, Political Science, and Anthropology; and Africana Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and Middle East Studies
