Course Description

In early 2020, Covid-19 swept across the globe and changed our world. Almost overnight, “life” went virtual, and the pandemic highlighted complex issues of politics, leadership, education, race, and class. Major portions of the world economy shut down. Pollution fell dramatically in urban areas, and as people moved out of public spaces wildlife moved in. Scholars from across the College of Arts and Sciences will hold a mirror up to the social, economic, and environmental disruption of the pandemic to examine our emerging new world and examine how resilience develops in a time of crisis. The course format will be a series of TED-style talks, with conversations among faculty and students about questions related to cultural and social response to the pandemic. 3 credits; will fulfill Core 7.1.
