Reflections on gendered differences in conceptualising and contextualising COVID-19

Poverty and Inequality Research Centre; ANU Gender Institute
In this webinar Professor Sarah Bradshaw considers how the notions of nature, natural and naturalness, and of hazard and disaster, have been understood in the COVID-19 context. She reflects on the use of these notions in the conceptualisations and contextualisations of COVID-19 as a gendered experience.
