Nowadays is a rare time for social researchers to feel ” experience-near ” (Geertz, 1983): “what he or his fellows see, feel, think, imagine, and so on, and which he would readily understand when similarly applied by others ” live under the stress of the pandemic. Socially, pandemic or attacks of infectious diseases in a wide area and affecting a high number of populations are not experienced, and felt equally by all members of the community. This happens because the stresses that arise during the pandemic are filtered by various ecological, physiological, economic, social, political and symbolic relations that operate in society, and citizens do not occupy the same position in these relations.
The webinar on pandemic organized by FIB-UGM will explore various life experiences during an pandemic from archaeological, historical, ethnographic, linguistic and literary perspectives. This webinar can also be an opportunity for a methodological exploration of the extent to which close experiences influence reading, reflecting on, or analyzing humanities facts.
