Modern Civic Life and Public Health Across the Americas

December 2, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

a DIALOGUES seminar

Democratic societies in all parts of the world are facing dual crises in the civic and physical health of their citizens. These facets of public wellbeing are closely connected, and those connections become apparent in the work women and migrant groups are doing around the world to foster civic engagement and community healing. This seminar will explore complex issues at the intersection of civic and physical health by focusing on the crucial roles women and migrants are playing in two populations—among displaced people in Colombia and in Latinx communities in the United States. We will seek to understand how social relationships, dialogues, religious values, and family traditions affect the fortunes of vulnerable people in different social contexts.
