“As social beings, we humans have a hard time avoiding our tendency to put all phenomena, even a virus, into social categories. And while crises such as the current pandemic tend to bring out the best in people, unfortunately, we have also seen some instances where it seems to play on people’s fears. What are some of the risks involved in how we talk about and react to the pandemic, and how can we ensure that we don’t let the search for answers and explanations lead us to bigotry and xenophobia? We will also explore some of the ways the virus impacts various communities differently.”
