Description

Congratulations to Dr. Danielle Schoon (Near Eastern Languages and Cultures) who, along with Harmony Bench (Dance), Yana Hashamova (Slavic), and Hannah Kosstrin (Dance), received a Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme special Covid-19 grant for Audiences and Online Reception: Before and After Covid-19.

This project examines the impact of COVID-19 and quarantine experiences on artistic and cultural production and reception by examining historical precedents, situating audiences within their cultural and political milieu, and imagining possible futures based on how audiences are currently forming. Collaborators will deepen contextual understanding of the artistic and humanistic dimensions of the pandemic by forging interdisciplinary, intellectual communities and innovating mechanisms for developing and sharing research under current constraints. In so doing, collaborators will foster long-term, mutually-beneficial relationships that support the work of artists and scholars who are struggling in the current state of emergency.
