In this interdisciplinary lecture, we will show how geographers investigate the emergence, spread, and possible containment of the SARS-CoV2 virus through a unique lens of spatial interaction. In addition, we will see how different geographical tools are used to convey information in both useful and not-so-useful ways.
Instructors Jennifer Marshman and Michael Imort draw on expertise in human geography and in health for a ‘think global, act local’ approach to engaging with this novel virus, which will provide you with some theoretical insights into the global nature of the issue and practical takeaways to implement at home.
