COVID 19 has shaped, altered, and impacted nearly every facet of the world as we knew it prior to the start of the pandemic. From what was once a new and novel virus, to the development of testing, policies, and vaccines, and through the altered social reality that characterizes the new normal we work to make sense of our COVID-era realities. Previously we explored the narratives that marked the beginnings of the COVID-era in two volumes. What has been made clear to us is that our realities continue to spark narratives and stories which have a provocative and important power to help support our continued engagement with COVID. This volume provides a continued context for the power of narratives with a new opportunity to explore COVID-era realities nearly two years into COVID-19 – the power to chronicle, the power to transform, the power to inspire, the power to build allyship through hardship is the aim of this third volume. We chronicle how academics, educators, and community members continue to experience COVID-era realities at personal and/or professional levels: lessons they are learning and tales that help provide context, content, or convergence for readers. Chapters enter on issues of advocacy, diversity, equity, family, labor, technology, society, trepidation, and/or triumph and the book into four sections: On Loss & Struggle, On Adaptation, On Strength & Resilience, and On Moving Forward.

1. Corona Chrocicles 3.0

COVID 19 has shaped, altered, and impacted nearly every facet of the world as we knew it prior to the start of the pandemic. From what was once a new and novel virus, to the development of testing, policies, and vaccines, and through the altered social reality that characterizes the new normal we work to make sense of our COVID-era realities. Previously we explored the narratives that marked the beginnings of the COVID-era in two volumes. What has been made clear to us is that our realities continue to spark narratives and stories which have a provocative and important power to help support our continued engagement with COVID.

2. Necessary Narratives in Uncertain Times

 

COVID 19 or Coronavirus or Corona has undoubtedly affected every facet of life for every citizen of the world. In early 2020 most of the world had not even contemplated its name. Economic, health, labor, and social sectors have suffered tremendously during this pandemic. Education changed, quite literally, overnight. We now find ourselves in a digital landscape trying to engage with our ‘new normal.’ We realize that many educators from pre-schools through graduate colleges are engaging different realities other than what we are used to. These realities have sparked many narratives and stories, some verbalized, others shared on social media, and others still communicated within our contexts of learning.

This groundbreaking volume, the first of two, carefully weaves together over 30 narratives of faculty, K-12 teachers, students, parents, and community members that center the experience of COVID-19. This volume is centered on a commitment to not losing the power of these narratives – the power to chronicle, the power to transform, the power to inspire, the power to build allyship through hardship. 

 

This volume chronicle how a variety of people have experienced the moments of COVID at personal and/or professional levels: lessons they are learning and tales that help provide context, content, or convergence for readers. Individual narratives work together to center issues of advocacy, diversity, equity, family, labor, technology, society, struggle, and trepidation.

This groundbreaking volume, the second of two, carefully weaves together, over 33 chapters, perspectives on the processes, leadership, commitments, and hope associated with the experience of COVID-19. Both volumes center a commitment to not losing the power narrative – the power to chronicle, the power to transform, the power to inspire, the power to build allyship through hardship.
