This module responds to the Covid-19 emergency – showing the critical and unique contribution the social and historical sciences can make in helping us understand the pandemic’s origins, societies’ responses to it, and its impact, both now and in the future. Whilst this course has an Anthropology module code it is NOT just Anthropology. Spanning 7 disciplines/Institutes across the Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences (Anthropology, Geography, History, IAS, Political Science, Economics, Institute of Americas) and including contributions from outside the Faculty, it will take a critical and explicitly interdisciplinary approach to interrogate the most significant global crisis in generations.
