Event Description: 

From social isolation due to quarantine, to changes in work environments, to the closing of public spaces, the COVID-19 outbreak has profoundly impacted individual and societal behaviors. We have had to reshape the many ways we interact with one another and to our environs, striving, as Roger Cohen wrote in the NYT, “for national and personal reinvention and rebalancing.”

How do we interact, within and across societies, both now and in the future?

What meaningful connections have we (re)discovered during the pandemic–with ourselves, with art, with nature, and with others?

How far has technology taken us? And at what point has its use gone too far?
