With this blog post, we want to gi­­­­­­­­ve peo­ple from around the world and from dif­­­­­­­­fe­rent back­­­­­­­­grounds the op­­­­­­­­por­tu­­­­­­­­ni­­­­­­­­ty to tell their per­­­­­­­­so­nal sto­ries in ti­­­­­­­­mes of the Co­ro­­­­­­­­na pan­­­­­­­­de­­­­­­­­mic. To­day­'s re­port re­a­ches us from Lat­via. It de­s­cri­bes va­rious pro­blems and chan­ges that ha­ve emer­ged as a con­se­quence of the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic. For ex­am­ple, it is ex­tre­me­ly dif­fi­cult or even im­pos­si­ble to get me­di­cal ap­point­ment­s, and the free­dom to tra­vel has al­so be­en se­ver­ely re­stric­te­d. Par­ti­cu­la­r­ly if you ha­ve clo­se re­la­ti­ves ab­roa­d, this can be ve­ry stress­ful. What is spe­ci­al about this week­'s post is that we can lis­ten to it in Lat­vi­an and Eng­lis­h. We ho­pe you en­joy this week­'s post.

Why this pro­jec­t?

Be­­­­­­cau­­­­­­se the Co­ro­­­­­­na pan­­­­­­de­­­­­­mic has now re­a­ched all the coun­tries of the world and is im­pac­ting the li­­­­­­ves of the ma­­­­­­jo­ri­­­­­­ty of the world’s po­­­­­­pu­la­ti­o­n, we, two stu­­­­­­dents of Cu­sa­­­­­­nus Un­­­­­i­­­­­­ver­­­­­­­­­­­si­­­­­­ty, are in­­­­­­te­res­ted in lea­r­­­­­­ning about peo­ple in other pla­­­­­­ces of the world beyond what the me­­­­­­dia has co­­­­­­ver­­­­­­e­d. The aim is to en­ter in­­­­­­to a so­­­­­­ci­a­l­­­­­­ly re­le­vant di­a­logue at the in­­­­­­ter­face bet­ween aca­­­­­­de­­­­­­mic schol­a­r­­­­­­ship and so­­­­­­ci­e­­­­­­ty, and to au­then­ti­­­­­­ca­l­­­­­­ly pro­vi­­­­­­de dif­­­­­­fe­rent per­spec­ti­­­­­­ve­s. With this goal in min­d, we want to ask peo­ple from dif­­­­­­fe­rent re­­­­­­gi­­­­­­ons of the world to of­­­­­­fer their own in­­­­­­ter­pre­ta­ti­­­­­­ons, their own na­r­ra­ti­­­­­­ves of the cur­rent si­tua­ti­o­n. The blog posts are dis­­­­­played in al­­­­­pha­­­­­be­ti­­­­­cal or­­­­­der of re­­­­­gi­­­­­ons, coun­tries and ci­ties. No­te: The in­­­­­­­­­­­for­­­­­­ma­ti­on pro­vi­­­­­­ded here re­­­­­­pres­ents the in­­­­­­­­­­­di­vi­­­­­­du­al opi­­­­­­ni­­­­­­ons and in­­­­­­­­­­­di­vi­­­­­­du­al ex­­­­­­pe­ri­ences of tho­­­­­­se per­­­­­­sons in­­­­­­ter­view­­­­­­e­d.
