XII ANNUAL REGINA FLANNERY HERZFELD SYMPOSIUM ON THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF NATIVE AMERICANS
The Department of Anthropology at the Catholic University of America presents
Michael Wilcox, Stanford University
"Reversing the Terminal Narrative: Reframing Disease, Community Health and Pandemics Among Native Peoples in the Wake of COVID”
This talk explores the ways in which historians, anthropologists and archaeologists have conceptualized disease among Indigenous communities as a deterministic force of colonization and conquest. It raises questions about the role of disease as a biologically neutral agent of conquest to explain how Native communities have responded to the most recent global pandemic.
