In light of the rapidly emerging material related to Black Lives Matter and COVID-19, MAQ is hosting three new blogs:
- Black Lives Matter, essays edited by MAQ and social justice resources
- COVID-19 Responses, essays edited by MAQ, and
- Medical Anthropology Weekly: COVID-19, a curated collection of recent content related to medical anthropology and COVID-19. Medical Anthropology Weekly is a collaboration between Society for Medical Anthropology, MAQ and Somatosphere.
Members of the MAQ community are invited to submit material for the Black Lives Matter and COVID-19 Responses blog directly to Vincanne Adams for consideration. Submissions will be reviewed expediently and posted as quickly as possible. Rapid Responses are essays that relate to rapidly evolving experiences, and are therefore distinct from the other MAQ blogs. Some essays have been been written as personal reflections and others as theoretical exegeses on the current situation. All of the posts offer insights that come from what might be called the critical anthropological imagination. We will also included reposts from members of the MAQ community that have been posted on sites that have little overlap in readership.
