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 with a post from Zambia in southern Africa. The report shows once again the changes the current pandemic has brought about. It illustrates how mundane things become more important than they had been before the outbreak of the disease. This post will be the last one in our "Intercultural Feuilleton" and we are grateful for following the posts during the last months. We would like to give heartfelt thanks to all participants for sharing and reading these stories, and we wish you all the best in this difficult time. Listen to our last post here:
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.
