The Pandemic Journaling Project
How has the COVID-19 pandemic imprinted itself in our lives? How might a trove of first-person reflections on the changing texture of pandemic life – created with the ordinary tools of 21st century digital life – both enrich and challenge our understanding of ourselves and our society? Could online journaling help people cope with the disruption, stress, and anxiety associated with a massive global health crisis? To answer these questions, Sarah Willen and her colleagues co-created The Pandemic Journaling Project (PJP) as a combined journaling platform and research study created in 2020. PJP is a space where ordinary people around the world could take 10 minutes a week to chronicle their pandemic experiences in words, audio, and images. Join us to learn more about the project’s key findings, its value as a window into the mental health burdens imposed by COVID-19, and how “archival activism” can shape future understandings of our current time period.
