Global, Urban, and Environmental Studies (GLUE)

Global Studies COVID-19 Archive

    We wanted a space to reflect critically, as a community, on what the COVID-19 pandemic will leave in its wake. 

    How will we remember this pandemic? What will we choose to remember? What will become normalized and what will never feel normal again? What will be its leftovers, what will remain? And what will fade away?

    Archiving—and other practices of remembering—are crucial to the work we do in our program; we choose not to forget and we hold ourselves accountable to the past and the future. As part of this process, we called for student submissions of any form (diary entries; essays; pictures; illustrations; films; research papers; audio-recording; twitter threads; etc…) that constitute a reflection on the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    Explore the reflections from our community below.

The New School’s interdisciplinary undergraduate programs in Global, Urban and Environmental Studies (GLUE) form an academic laboratory for students to delve into the manifold ways in which global forces are redefining our cities and our ecologies. Within a project-centered curriculum students develop expertise through one of our undergraduate majors and a suite of graduate programs. Students learn to synthesize and creatively employ concepts and skills from social sciences, design, and humanities, and to use this knowledge to impact their world.
