It is commonplace for people to say, “we’re all in this together.” We’re not. In fact, the impact has been disproportionately felt by people who are already disadvantaged by reasons of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, poverty, age, and intersections of disfavored identity. This online course will give students an opportunity to hear from lecturers around the world, many of whom were presenting their lectures as the virus was spreading and vaccines were still an unfulfilled hope, while others discuss the growing problem of inequitable vaccine distribution. For the first year of enrollment, students will also have the opportunity to engage in monthly live discussions with one of the professors of the course. The course explores the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on members of disadvantaged communities through the lens of equality law.
