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. In to­day­'s post, Mar­ga­re­te from New York re­ports on de­ve­lop­ments and re­la­ted ex­pe­ri­ences du­ring the Co­ro­na Cri­sis. She has not be­en di­rect­ly af­fec­ted by the pan­de­mic and yet she and the en­ti­re ur­ban po­pu­la­ti­on are suf­fe­ring from the con­se­quences of the state of emer­gen­cy. It has led to a con­ti­nuous sen­se of ner­vous strain and an­xie­ty, cau­se­d, for ex­am­ple, by hea­ring con­stant si­ren wai­ling from emer­gen­cy ve­hic­les, which pla­ces ma­xi­mum psy­cho­lo­gi­cal strain on eve­r­yo­ne. In ad­di­ti­o­n, the­re is a strong fee­ling of iso­la­ti­on due to the so­ci­al di­stan­cing mea­su­res, i.e. from ha­ving to work at home and take care of child­ren at the sa­me time. Lis­ten to her ac­count from one of the world’s lar­gest me­tro­po­li­ses:

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.
