Big Questions: Will anything be the same after COVID?

Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020

7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

While history can tell us much about pandemics and infectious disease, it can’t explain everything that’s life-changing about COVID-19. What are some of the unique and long-term impacts of this pandemic on economics, education, science, health care, hunger, and civil liberties, and what lessons might we learn from other countries? 

Join Eric Carter, Edens Associate Professor of Geography and Global Health, and James Ochi ’80, in conversation with President Suzanne Rivera. Big Questions events will take place online.

Following the presentation and Q&A in Zoom, stay online for networking and connection with Macalester community members using the Remo platform.

Closed Captioning will be provided in Zoom

Big Questions are virtual events with Macalester President Rivera, faculty, staff, and alumni that celebrate the liberal arts with thought-provoking conversations about global issues, plus opportunities to connect with your fellow alumni, parents, and friends. See all Big Questions events
