Join the Migration Research group in their upcoming online lecture.
ABSTRACT / Since the time named by Karl Polanyi ‘the great transformation’ and up to pre-COVID-19 era, the market has played the central role in organization of the society. Such system has affected women more profoundly: to be officially paid, they had to compromise professional and family life. The lecture will shed the light on the impact that COVID-19 pandemic lockdown had on migrant women in Austria and Hungary. The lecture draws on the book chapter based on rich empirical data featuring post-Yugoslav and post-Soviet female immigrants’ experiences of COVID-19 pandemic in Austria and Hungary. The analysis reveals the ways in which experiences with previous global crises that represented radical changes influenced their resilience throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
