“If trauma leads to a loss of confidence in one’s ability to interpret the world, I suspect that many of us in the business of peddling knowledge and interpretation found ourselves wrestling with self-doubt. The pandemic brought unexpected questions. How would we respond?”

Lori Lefkovitz, Professor of English, Ruderman Professor of Jewish Studies, and Director of the Humanities Center, has written a blog post on the Pandemic Teaching Initiative for Humanities for All, an initiative of the National Humanities Alliance Foundation. The blog post calls attention to the initiative’s public-facing teaching modules, many of which were created by Department of English faculty, and invites faculty from other institutions to donate their contributions.
