Humanities Institute

Pandemic Project

*The Health Humanities section of the HI Website is currently being updated, please excuse confusing or broken links.

The Humanities Institute is working with Dr. Jamie Pennebaker of the Psychology department and his team in a project to collect and analyze pandemic narratives. The HI’s focus in this project will be analyzing narrative themes related to health equity and health justice, as well as to the role of communities and community organization during the pandemic. We invite readers to add their own COVID-19 narratives to Dr. Pennebaker's web site.

See the video below for a faculty panel discussing the Pandemic Project and its implications for Health Equity.
