Building Everyday Resilience with Technology: Exacerbated Marginalization in Covid-19


This research project explores the experiences of historically marginalized populations during the COVID-19 pandemic. In crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic, people with marginalized identities are differentially impacted as the crisis may exacerbate historical issues interwoven with their being members of marginalized populations. The project examines how COVID-19 marginalizes the already marginalized and creates new kinds of marginalization (or classes of it), as well as how marginalized populations draw on the capabilities of  Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to promote resilience and where current ICTs create additional barriers.
