Are you writing about your new normal during COVID-19? Would you like to share your experiences and have them preserved for future generations?
EKU Special Collections & Archives is looking to collect journals and other written materials from students, faculty, and staff to document how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected work and life at EKU. We are also interested in journals from our community to document their lives in Kentucky.
How Do You Begin? Write down your thoughts at least twice a week for a semester (or as long as you wish). Or simply write an essay that summarizes your experiences and thoughts so far. It's completely up to you.
Are You Teaching Classes? Please consider encouraging students to participate, or turning this into an alternate class assignment. We'd be glad to talk to you about this, especially due to the sensitive nature of the topic. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
