THE WITCH AND THE MICROBE:
LINGERING COVID-19 EMBODIMENTS, FOOD CULTURES, AND MICROBIAL SCIENCE

Looking for PARTICIPANTS

This research addresses those populations experiencing long-lasting symptoms and relapses of Covid-19 in order to address their multiple vulnerabilities and inequalities (i.e. healthcare, employment and childcare in convalescence).  

By documenting, analysing and interpreting the embodied experiences of prolonged Covid-19 (~+60 days) on various digital networks and together with these online communities, it co-develops a ‘lived’ archive of the resulting ad hoc remedies, dietary and bodily practices used to live with/recover from the lingering symptoms of the disease.

‘Live’ archives of Covid-19 embodied experiences will provide invaluable information for the clinical and interdisciplinary management and prognosis of the disease. Here, what I call ‘microbiology multiple’ brings microbes and people into the ‘science of microbiology’ instead of the opposite. It focuses on embodiment and collective action rather than on a more interpretative dimension of health and wellbeing with(out) microbes.
