The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted all areas of society. In the Netherlands, the first lockdown in March has brought life almost to a standstill. For many, that period of isolation was a moment of reflection. It has also generated a lot of new initiatives, including projects in the area of cultural heritage and history to capture sources of the way people experience this crisis. In the CREATE salon on Wednesday 25 November we present ongoing research on two dimensions of the pandemic: the way it affects how scientists in the Netherlands generate and distribute reliable information in what is also an ‘infodemic’, and the ways in which the crisis impacts the everyday lives of individual citizens. With contributions by Giovanni Colavizza & Karlijn Roex and Tobias Blanke & Julia Noordegraaf.
Programme and registration information is provided on the event page for this salon.
