As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, anthropological insights are valuable research and teaching resources for health promotion, disease prevention, and the strengthening of health systems. We've collected some of these resources to help support open and fact-based conversations about the pandemic and community responses. The AAA COVID-19 Resources webpage includes online learning tools, AAA webinars, resources, and select news stories from fellow anthropologists.

We've hosted several free webinars this past month, with more to come. The next webinar, COVID-19: Responses from Around the Globewill take place on Thursday, April 2 at 1 p.m. EDT. If you missed the previous webinars, we've made them available to view on our YouTube Channel and website.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, anthropological insights are valuable research and teaching resources for health promotion, disease prevention, and the strengthening of health systems. AAA is collecting some of these resources here to support open and fact-based conversations about the pandemic and community responses. We will continue to closely monitor local, national, and international developments while collaborating with the local public health authorities. Toward that end, this page will be updated regularly. If you have information you would like to share, please email Jeff Martin at jmartin@americananthro.org.

Dear all: 

We have published a ‘retrospective’ collection of COVID-19 relevant pieces from the MAT archives. This is accompanied by a short blog on open-access publishing during the pandemic. Blog and collection have been written and compiled by Cristina Moreno Lozano, our Assistant Editor at MAT.

The post can be found here:

We hope this collection will contribute to everyone's engagement with COVID-19 and the responses to the pandemic. Please read and circulate widely through your networks and social media.

Launching blog Corona Times - Understanding the world through Covid-19


In this period of uncertainty, anxiety, suffering and death, we are launching Corona Times (www.coronatimes.net), a blog where scholars from social sciences and the humanities from around the world will come together to make humble and valuable contributions to understand the Covid-19 pandemic. The blog is a public engagement project of HUMA - Institute for the Humanities in Africa, University of Cape Town.

Here is our first piece, a collective editorial to get us started on this difficult journey, reflecting of what academic freedom means in the current moment:

Consciously Quarantined. A COVID-19 response from the social sciences


We are alerting you to a new blog series launched by UCL Medical Anthropology that aims to reflect upon and contribute to discussions about the unfolding global coronavirus situation entitled ‘Consciously Quarantined. A COVID-19 response from the social sciences’ https://medanthucl.com/2020/03/19/consciously-quarantined-a-covid-19-response-from-the-social-sciences/

This blog series began last Friday with the first set of posts reflecting on the situation in Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, UK and in relation to digital media. The series is already generating significant interest and we aim to post regularly in the coming days and weeks and going forward. We are keen to solicit contributions globally. 

Please don't hesitate to get in contact with either myself Sahra Gibbon (s.gibbon@ucl.ac.uk) or Rebecca Irons (rebecca.irons@ucl.ac.uk) if you have any queries. We very much look forward to your contributions and please do also circulate on your networks.
