Event Information

Event description
Join the Office of Public Lectures in weekly conversations focusing on how we think about and co-exist with our new normal: COVID-19.

About this Event

The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be more than just a threat to our health: it’s become a disruption of our way of life, affecting everything from supply chains, to the way we love, to what is considered essential work, how are we to think about and live amidst this “new normal”?

To answer this, the Graduate School’s Office of Public Lectures, in partnership with faculty from Population Health, the Communication Leadership program within the Department of Communication, and many others, will host a weekly panel titled “Coexisting with COVID-19.”

Join moderator Hanson Hosein Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. for 30-minute livestream talks featuring 2-3 faculty from across the UW. The series is presented free of charge; advance registration required.
