Workshop - COVID-19 and Africa: Equations, Epistemologies, and Experiences

This workshop will examine Covid-19 data and its debates as they relate to Africa, as well as the ways in which this region has been represented and modelled during the pandemic, integrating experiences of the pandemic with its portrayal in both medical and popular media. Bringing together researchers from the humanities and social sciences as well as medicine, the workshop will analyse medical data, medical experiences, and medical representations, interrogating what ‘Africa’ itself signifies within the field of global health.
