COVID-19 Narratives

The COVID-19 pandemic inspired many to write about their experiences. Some of these narratives are collected here, including former Center faculty member Bill Gardner’s Cancer Journal about his experience of having cancer treatment during the pandemic. Also, in Spring 2021, Center affiliated faculty member Candace Skiba taught COVID CULTURES that explored themes related to the pandemic. These included vaccine supply and vaccine passports, as well as depictions of COVID-19 in visual and performing arts, questions of spirituality, and personal narratives and journalistic accounts of COVID-19. The students’ work can be found here. The work of students in Uma Satyavolu Rau’s Literature and Medicine seminar are here.
