Clarkson University COVID-19 Interviews
Scope of Collection
Between 2020-23, students in Professor Laura Ettinger's courses conducted audio interviews with relatives, friends, and fellow students about how the COVID-19 pandemic affected their interviewees and/or their interviewees' families and communities. The majority of the interviews were conducted in September 2020 and in late January/early February 2023 by students in her History of Public Health in America courses. Two were conducted in late January/early February 2021 by students in her History of the American Family course, and two were conducted in December 2022 by first-year students in her Clarkson Seminar course. The collection also contains an interview that Professor Ettinger conducted with her mother in May 2020. With the permission of the interviewees, Clarkson University students, along with Professor Ettinger, shared their interviews with this project so that people in the future can learn about what it was like to live during the pandemic.
