Call for Reflections on COVID-19
PROJECT: Eagle Nations Reflections on COVID-19
We are living in a time when history is being made. Our response to and the impact of this pandemic will be studied by historians, sociologists, political scientists, and many other disciplines for years. Georgia Southern Libraries is calling for your Reflections on this historical event and how it is affecting you by asking for your participating in the following activity:
Call for Reflections on COVID-19Highlight 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. These can be print or electronic.
Documentation can be in any form:
- Journal (does not have to be daily or lengthy)
- Graphic novel/Comic Strip
- Art (Paintings, drawing, mixed media, sculpture)
- Voice recording/oral history (along the lines of NPR’s StoryCorps)
- Anything you want!
Documentation can capture anything: feelings, news items, hopes, fears, statistics, (literally anything that feels relevant at the time).
Who can participate? Any GS faculty, staff, student or immediate family member!! We want this collection to capture every aspect of how COVID-19 has affected you and your families.
What will happen to it? Materials will be donated and permanently archived in Georgia Southern University Libraries‘ Special Collections in order to document the varied ways this pandemic has shaped our local and University communities.
