Researching Whiteness in a Transnational Pandemic Context

Organisers: the ChinaWhite research team (www.china-white.org), Department of Anthropology/AISSR, University of Amsterdam

Location: REC B 5.12

With the rise of Asian economies, more and more white westerners are moving to Asia to look for business and job opportunities. The outbreak of Covid-19 in China in early 2020 and its development into a global pandemic not only posed challenges to transnational mobility for various groups of migrants, but significantly restricted onsite research activities. It pushes us to ask new questions addressing the intersection of race, class, gender, nationality, language, and other demarcations of social inequalities, which have been both highlighted and contested by the global spread of Covid-19.
