These are unusual times. 

We are a group of students who are working to document life in the time of COVID-19 through an anthropological lens. The nature of this project is one that allows for continuous growth, change, and collaboration. This website will act as a way of recording this historical moment in ways both big and small. Although this website stemmed from our class at Bard College, this project will only strengthen with contributions from our readers. 


Viral videos, empty aisles, realities of quarantine—the impact of this virus is felt.


Help us archive a collective memory.

Special thanks to:

Duff Morton, Professor of Anthropology, Bard College
