Many sociologists did public sociology on AIDS, and thus mainly published outside of these venues, for example, publishing in Science, Nature, Sci. American, various medical and public health journals, to name just a few. I suspect this will be true of COVID-19 as well.
Yet our team alone published one on malaria and some on TB, in other journals.
My question to Professor Hatch is how Black freedom movements and other organizations can make use of thie racial data on COVID?
Thanks to all! FYI: Folks can read more from Dr. Epstein, Dr. Harris, Dr. Hatch and others on our SKAT blog: https://asaskat.com/blog/
There is considerable evidence that the social organization of capitalism led to interspecies transfer and then to rapid global spread of the virus. Shouldn't this be part of our sociological perspective on the pandemic?
My Question is for Dr. Pescosolido:identified
Tony, would you post the author's name? Thanks.
Vanessa Gamble is the scholar Tony’s cited
My Question is for Dr. Pescosolido: Did you find that when people sought "helpers" either inside or outside their social networks, more female identified persons were called upon more to engage in emotional labor for others?

I would echo Joseph’s comment on the peculiarity of the US as an exceptional case in the current Covid-19 pandemic. My co-author, Lynette Chua, and I did work on the development of public health governance strategies - what we call “governing through contagion” - in colonial and post-colonial Singapore, and what was interesting for us is that, beyond the surface of technocratic competence, post-colonial responses to epidemics in Singapore have, in part, reproduced or rearticulated forms of colonial difference - see the situation faced by migrant workers.
RE Bernie, some folks suggest that the Black Plague was the end of feudalism and rise of captialism
Hi panelists, can we circle back to the question that we "earn our keep" on documenting social inequalities with more and more data? What ethics and practices do sociologists need to shift in our profession? or class rooms? activist work?
Thanks everyone for fabulous and insightful comments and questions!
What was the book that Dr. Harris cited there?
The comparative approach is apt and important. But it still leaves open what the SKAT or med sociology approach is that is distinctive from political scientists in international relations or historical-comparative sociology. I don’t have the answer but the question is—what is the SKAT approach to comparison?
Tony, YES. Avoiding extractive research, Afro-pessimisms, see and ourselves (others) as the Great Explainers are critical for our field, Working from and with communities is critical. Appreciate all the great insights from all the talks and for Ruha's comments and remarks.
Thanks to all!
Thank you, panellists!
THANK YOU ALL! SO great, and what a good job Ruha has done too!
+1 Tony and Du Bois, I think is crucial. He went from discourse with Weber to washing his hands of sociology. Thanks goodness we have. ASA 2021
