The Pandemic Story Project: Oral Histories from Lowell and Lawrence

October 12, 2021

During 2020 and early 2021, students at UMass Lowell and students/researchers associated with the Lawrence History Center began collecting oral histories, from people living or working in Lowell and Lawrence, about their experiences during the COVID-19 Pandemic. In this presentation, we’ll begin by providing details about how this project came about and how we connected with people willing to share their stories. We’ll then read a few excerpts from the oral histories, covering topics such as healthcare, education, childcare, air travel, managing non-profits, starting mutual aid associations, and dealing with everyday issues such as mask wearing and COVID testing. This work will be published by Loom Press in spring 2022.

With support from UMass Lowell and the Lawrence History Center. Part of the Lowell City Festival of Learning www.lowellcityoflearning.org.
