Please see the conference poster for further details. We hope to see you there!

In exploring how COVID-19 has given rise to complex and uncertain transformation but has also led to a great display of resilience, with different states, communities, and individuals adapting to and resisting this disaster, our speakers will engage with themes such as global politics, labour and work, social welfare provisioning and access to services, communities and connections, and equity, justice, and activism.

The conference will take place on November 19th (3-6:30 PM EST), November 23rd (3-6:30 PM EST), and November 26th (10-12:30 PM EST). Keynote addresses will be given by Dr. Ethel Tungohan (York University), Dr. Jonathan Corpus Ong (University of Massachusetts-Amherst), and Dr. Gideon Lasco (University of the Philippines).
