Please join ISA's Interdisciplinary Studies Section on February 17th, 2021 as it hosts a webinar on “Covid-19 as global social actor: Social transformation in the wake of the Pandemic.” The Covid-19 virus is becoming a major social actor, precipitation transformations in social practices and institutions both within states and globally. We are hearing about the economic impact of the pandemic, but less about the social transformations that it affects. Presenters will address particular social effects drawing implications for more widespread global effects.
