Multidisciplinary panel to examine complexities of coronavirus

-

Location: Livestream Only

UPDATE: This event will be available by livestream only: bit.ly/2Iny3yQ

A panel of University of Notre Dame experts will discuss the effects of COVID-19 on health and the economy, as well as the social and cultural implications of the outbreak, in a multidisciplinary discussion at 12:30 p.m., March 24 by livestream at bit.ly/2Iny3yQ

The discussion is sponsored by the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies and the Eck Institute of Global Health.

Liu Institute director Michel Hockx, an expert on censorship in China, will moderate the discussion. Panelists are Eck Institute director Bernard Nahlen, a physician who specializes in global diseases; anthropologist Catherine Bolten, an Eck Institute affiliate who studied the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone; sociologist Jennifer Huynh, a Liu Institute faculty fellow who specializes in racism and ethnicity; and economist Nelson Mark, a Liu Institute faculty fellow who researches international macroeconomics and international finance.

“The world’s attention is understandably focused on COVID-19, and new information is coming forward regularly—from revelations about the virus and its manifestation to health policies to public recommendations,” said Nahlen. “It’s important to keep current about coronavirus, and this panel will give important updates as well as illuminate the facts about the virus.” 

“The effects of the coronavirus extend beyond physical health,” Hockx added. “Globally, the virus has prompted racial hostility and mistrust as well as misinformation about cultural practices and values. Additionally, coronavirus has affected markets and economies worldwide that will undoubtedly affect everyday lives.”

The Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies provides a forum for integrated and multidisciplinary research and teaching on Asia. It supports projects that combine teaching, research, and social engagement, creating a unique model of rounded education about Asia. The Institute also promotes general awareness, understanding and knowledge of Asia through organizing public events and supporting student and faculty scholarship and engagement with partners in Asia. 

The Eck Institute for Global Health brings together a diverse group of faculty, staff, and students from science, engineering, social science, and other disciplines whose research addresses global health challenges. This University-wide enterprise, rooted in the fundamental recognition of health as a basic human right, collaborates with global partners in academia, the corporate sector, NGOs, and government agencies to develop innovative solutions and build upon the University of Notre Dame’s historic strengths and institution priorities.
