On Being Voices of Prudence

In her blogpost "On being voices of prudence in times of a pandemic", Prof. Dr. Judith Beyer discusses what anthropologists can do in the current Covid-19 crisis.

Judith Beyer argues that "[t]he role of anthropologists in times such as these is to observe diligently." She furthermore elaborates that "[our] task in the case of COVID-19 is to be voices of prudence, questioning the TINA principle, casting doubts at hasty consensus, and demanding specific reasons for specific measures that impact us all."
