As we faced the immense upheaval caused by the pandemic—challenges to our concept of borders, disruption of civic life, revelation of our truly vulnerable communities, confrontation of our invisible systems—we turned to our community of alumni with a simple request: what might be the larger (perhaps less overt) implications of the era of quarantine?
Throughout the months of May and June, we will post their reflections of shared humanity, of remembrance, of release, of healing, and of truth. It is our hope that this series will offer our community a new lens through which we can understand this period of time.
