Our response to and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be studied by historians, sociologists, political scientists, and many other disciplines for years. Georgia Southern Libraries invites you to reflect on this historical event and how it is affecting you by asking for your participation in the following activity:
Highlight a record of your experience dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
This reflection can include anything from reactions to the pandemic, daily activities while in quarantine, or even a daily log of your pet’s activities. We welcome submissions from any GS faculty, staff, student or immediate family member!!
The following questions are only suggestions. Answer as many or as few as you wish, or feel free to add your own topics or observations on other events or subjects relating to COVID-19 and the current state of our campus, our state, the U.S., and the world.
Think about YOURSELF (general themes: your emotions, concerns, your experiences with how the world is changing and your reactions to these changes)
Think about YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, and OTHERS you encounter in daily life (general themes: your friends and family and your relationships with others, and how these are changing now that we must perform social distancing, self quarantines, and other measures to "flatten the curve")
Think about SOCIETY, INSTITUTIONS, and THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY (general themes: society, institutions, the different aspects of these times, the virus itself, the stock market, hoarding, public events, hospitals, universities, work, media, etc.)
