With a vaccine to the coronavirus now being distributed, we may be able to begin seeing some outlines of what life and work will look like when the COVID-19 pandemic passes. The spread of the virus in the past 12 months has forced countless adaptions upon almost all of us, whether we wished for them or not. And there is no adequate way to express of the impact of the lives lost.
In this new department called The Afterlife, LMU Magazine, with the help of thought leaders and experts among the LMU community, will explore the ways in which the pandemic may change us in our interactions and daily work.
We welcome submissions. Tell us in 250 words about the most important change, for better or for worse, that you see as long-lasting in your world of work or expertise. Email your reflection to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name and a phone number, your relationship to the university, and your profession or area of expertise/work and we’ll post some to the LMU Magazine website here on the Afterlife page in the coming weeks.—The Editor.
