COVID-19 and shifts in Legal Consciousness
This summer, I will be continuing my research on the project – Making Publics in Public Health. The goal is to intertwine my interest in public health and law. The research concerns how information about health and disease is created, how it is provided to the news media, how this information reaches general audiences, and how people respond to it. I am particularly interested in asking about shifts in legal consciousness during the pandemic, how laypeople people enact the law in their daily lives, and the use of written law to enforce mandates.
