“Air and Environmental Health in the (Post-)COVID-19 World” is a 3-year project, directed by Dr. Tatiana Konrad at the University of Vienna and supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). The project explores how, through the virus, the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the ways we understand air, giving it agency as a visible, existent, and vital substance. These new meanings of air and their crucial contribution to the environmental humanities are the primary concerns of this project. The project employs perspectives from environmental and medical humanities, literary and cultural studies, race studies, and history.
