In this free pamphlet/e-book, humanities scholars from various disciplines come together to reflect on the COVID-19 pandemic from their own area-specific points of view. They look into similar crises from past pandemics. They emphasize the importance of memory when dealing with traumatic events. They ask questions like: where are similarities and what are most obvious differences in approaching life during a health crisis? Will life as we know it change dramatically when this is all over? Will digitization be a major focus from now on because of the shift working from home has brought on? It provides a virtual space for thinkers in the humanities to historically embed and critically interrogate our response to the Covid-19 crisis. We hope it will become a useful part of the academic response to reflect the current moment.
