EP #120 - 9.4.2020 Teaching in/with COVID-19

Today we will talk about the challenges of teaching and learning about COVID-19 in higher education with Audrey Truschke (trushkey), Theresa MacPhail, and Maddy Larkin.

Maddy Larkin is a junior Custom Design Major student at Drexel University. For her major, she combines studies of biology, psychology, criminology, and public health to study Humanistic Health. She is also a theatre minor and is involved in the Pennoni Honors College as a member and student mentor. 

Theresa MacPhail is a medical anthropologist at Stevens Institute of Technology and the author of The Viral Network: A Pathography of the H1N1 Influenza Pandemic (Cornell UP). Her research centers on the social, cultural, and political aspects of global health, infectious disease, and medicine. Her next book examines the global rise of allergies and will be published by Random House in 2022.

Audrey Truschke is Associate Professor of South Asian History at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. She is a premodern South Asianist by training, and is the author of two books on aspects of the Mughal Empire in India. She also publishes on historical memory and the politics of the past in the present. Because the pandemic has remade her world and she cannot get it off her mind, she is teaching a course at Rutgers-Newark in fall 2020 called Archiving COVID-19.
