Documenting Life during COVID-19 -- Volunteer to Journal
Everyone’s everyday life has been touched or disrupted since the first appearance of the current pandemic, COVID-19. The adjustments we make, the emotions we feel, and the actions we take will one day be the subject of historical studies.
In an effort to capture the lived experiences by members of the Miami University community, the Walter Havighurst Special Collections and University Archives invites you to keep a journal documenting your life during this pandemic. Journalists may type or write by hand, transcribe news, draw or compose memes, compose poems, gather stories and so forth. No stress needs to be placed on “good grammar”, spelling or style. The emphasis is on self-expression, candor and a willingness to be a social commentator.
Events are changing by the day. They are specific to you, and to your families and friends and communities. Please start writing now!
We are willing to accept both paper and digital submissions. For questions, please contact the Walter Havighurst Special Collections and University Archives.
