In May 2020, fifteen faculty collaborated to create an innovative online course examining how various academic disciplines approached and understood the COVID-19 crisis. Nearly three hundred students and community members from all over the world participated in this free offering.
It’s been an extraordinary year! Time to reconnect and reflect.
On Wednesday, May 26, faculty members and participants from last spring’s seminar, Pandemic! Northland Unites: A Collaborative Seminar on COVID-10, will reconvene to address topics related to the current state of the pandemic. Forbes contributor, Lucie Lapovsky, who participated in and penned an article highlighting the May term seminar, will moderate the panel.
The evening will consist of a one-hour panel discussion with faculty from the May 2020 course, including:
• Kyle Bladow, Assistant Professor of Native American Studies
• Geoffrey Vincent, Assistant Professor of Biology
• Elizabeth Andre, Associate Professor of Outdoor Education
• Barrett Gough, Hulings Visiting Assistant Professor of US and Environmental History and Culture
Following the panel, participants are invited to thirty minutes of breakout discussions— allowing an opportunity for the discussion groups from the May 2020 course to reunite with their study partners from last spring!
Emeritus Professor of Music Joel Glickman will cap off the evening by offering a creative response to these times, performing an original song and poem.
All are welcome to register for this event, regardless of participation in the 2020 seminar. Join us for this evening of community and connection!
