This week, we spoke with members of our in-region team to learn more about governmental and civilian reactions to COVID-19 on the ground in South Asia. Hear from Sanjay Kumar in India, Pukar Malla in Nepal, and Mariam Chughtai in Pakistan.
Numair Abbasi, a mixed media artist from Pakistan, joined the Mittal Institute in our latest group of Visiting Artist Fellows. His practice stages personal and social narratives in an attempt to challenge the politics behind how gender is socially constructed and performed.
A team of epidemiologists has launched the COVID-19 Mobility Data Network to provide daily updates to decision-makers at state and local levels on how well social distancing interventions are working to stem the transmission of COVID-19.
As previously noted, the Mittal Institute's in-person events for March and April 2020 have been postponed or cancelled until further notice.
