Meet our researchers from the Centre for Research on Pandemics & Society (PANSOC) at Oslo Metropolitan University. They will focus on what we can learn from historic pandemics and the situation during Covid-19. This event is part of OsloMets marking of World Mental Health Day (verdensdagen.no).
- Jessica Dimka will talk about the 1918 influenza pandemic’s mental health consequences / mental illness as risk factor and consequence of the 1918 influenza pandemic.
- Carla Louise Hughes is writing a master thesis on the association between the 1918 influenza pandemic and suicides in Norway and will tell us about her preliminary results.
- Nan Zou Bakkeli from Consumption Research Norway (SIFO): Rich people are happier than poor people, healthy people are happier than sick people and people in families are happier than single people. How do Norwegians cope during Covid-19 who do not have these happiness factors?
Event organizer: Lunsjpåfyll, University Library (oslomet.no).
Free of charge and open for all. The session will also be filmed and available in FilMet (film.oslomet.no) after the event.
