Essential Workers and Pandemic Stories

Essential Workers: 

At the beginning of the pandemic, in an effort to capture the unique situation in the world of work, we interviewed four people deemed essential workers.  These interviews are now archived at the University of Massachusetts and will be available online.


Elders and the Pandemic:

We also worked with Sociology students (Colin Adams, BCC professor) who were doing Service Learning assignments through the Career Services Office (Charlotte Lotz).  Four students have interviewed elders who discussed their strategies to dealing with the isolation and other issues related to the early days of the pandemic.  This was a pilot project and these interviews will not be publicly archived.
