Diversity and inclusion are values that support our vision and shape our culture at S.Anna and Wake Forrest. These values are crucial for continuous innovation, the exchange of ideas and represent the core of the academic experience we offer to students. This is the reason why we intend to contribute to the current and urgent debate on equality from a multi-cultural perspective by organizing this virtual colloquium “Re-thinking Marginalized Identities in the Pandemics”.
The session involves top professors and scholars representing Africa, America, Asia, and Europe who will debate the impact of COVID-19 on equality while exploring topics such as gender, sexuality, race and class in relation to the pandemics and its devastating and disproportionate effects.
