LCDS to offer new course in Diversity and Sustainability in the Era of the Covid-19 pandemic

June 1, 2020

For this coming fall ,the Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability has been given special permission to host a new special topics course presenting mutli-disciplinary perspectives on the current pandemic. Recognizing that the COVID 19 pandemic needs to be understood from multiple perspectives that cut across scholarly disciplines and straddle the boundary between the academy and other institutions in our society, this course will analyze the basic processes and consequences of the virus now known as the “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)” and the grave sickness it causes, called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Using a blended strategy of lectures and discussion, this team-taught course will include perspectives from the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities, addressing such topics as how the pandemic has affected our sense of public vs private space, our green business sector, our sense of self, our rights to privacy, our conception of statistical models, et. Consistent with the basic ethos of the Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability, our goal is to offer an integrative perspective on our planet’s current health crisis and its effects on multiple aspects of human life.
