Seminar – Fred Cooper on ‘Family Carers, Loneliness, and COVID-19: Preliminary Findings from ‘Caring through Coronavirus’

In the fourth paper in our 2020/21 seminar series, Fred Cooper from the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health at the University of Exeter explores narratives of loneliness and care from family carers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Online
This paper will discuss evidence on loneliness among family carers from Caring through Coronavirus, an interdisciplinary research project led by Dr Siobhan O’Dwyer at the University of Exeter Medical School. It considers tangled histories of loneliness and care, explores narratives from family carers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and situates carer loneliness within broader political structures of marginalisation and abandonment.

This seminar will take place online.
