Keynote: Professor Kirsten Ostherr (Rice University)
Date: 6-9 July 2021
This conference organized in conjunction with the University of Vienna, the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of St. Gallen explores the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on borders. Proposals for 20-minute presentations are invited from scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplinary fields associated with the Medical Humanities that explore the role the humanities can play in transcending borders of knowledge and making visible the multiform borders created and accentuated by COVID-19. A special issue publication is planned.
