It is a contradiction of our era that the amount of Zoom leaves us exhausted and also that there are too many online events that we would like to attend. Here is our list of online events from this past month that we had registered for and couldn’t attend, attended for ten minutes before a child required attention, or need to see again.
- Adia Benton (Northwestern) and Jonathan Flatley (Wayne State), “The Long 2020,” the Center for 21st Century Studies at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
- Dionne Brand (Guelph), “What we saw. What we made. When we emerge.” the Kitty Lundy Memorial Lecture at York University. Only available until March 25.
