Living History Today: Capturing the Covid-19 Experience

May 22, 2020 @ 5:30 am - 6:45 am

Register for this event via this Google Form

In our lifetime, there are few events that occur as a collective experience and make a significant impact on the way we function as a society from that point on.  We initially learn about such historical events in school, from resources like history books and documentaries.  But there are also diaries, artwork, photographs, and other first-hand accounts of those moments which may or may not be as accessible or even valued as much as referring to media of the time or a secondhand retelling of events.

This invitation is to a conversation around the ways we are currently living history, and how we can best capture personal experiences and changes that are taking place today.  How is our “new normal” impacting our family, our community, our job, and ourselves?  What stories should be captured, and what should future generations hear and learn about this period in time?  What opportunities does this create for formal and informal education in our roles as parents, teachers, students, and community organizations?

Optional reading prior to our conversation: A recent article, COVID-19 and Flashbulb Memories, shared some thoughts related to this topic.
