With this blog post, we want to gi­­ve peo­ple from around the world and from dif­­fe­rent back­­grounds the op­­por­tu­­ni­­ty to tell their per­­so­nal sto­ries in ti­­mes of the Co­ro­­na pan­­de­­mic. To­day with a per­so­nal sto­ry from the Cape Re­gi­on of South Af­ri­ca, mo­re pre­ci­se­ly from the ci­ty of Stel­len­bosch. For Ann Lou­w, a pro­fes­sor of che­mi­stry, it was per­so­nal­ly pain­ful that the lock­down meant her grand­daugh­ter­'s first bir­th­day would not take place phy­si­cal­ly as a group ce­le­bra­ti­o­n. Ho­we­ver, she did find a so­lu­ti­on in the form of a di­gi­tal bir­th­day par­ty. But lis­ten for your­sel­f.

Why this pro­jec­t?

Be­­cau­­se the Co­ro­­na pan­­de­­mic has now re­a­ched all the coun­tries of the world and is im­pac­ting the li­­ves of the ma­­jo­ri­­ty of the world’s po­­pu­la­ti­o­n, we, two stu­­dents of Cu­sa­­nus Un­i­­ver­­­si­­ty, are in­­te­res­ted in lea­r­­ning about peo­ple in other pla­­ces of the world beyond what the me­­dia has co­­ver­­e­d. The aim is to en­ter in­­to a so­­ci­a­l­­ly re­le­vant di­a­logue at the in­­ter­face bet­ween aca­­de­­mic schol­a­r­­ship and so­­ci­e­­ty, and to au­then­ti­­ca­l­­ly pro­vi­­de dif­­fe­rent per­spec­ti­­ve­s. With this goal in min­d, we want to ask peo­ple from dif­­fe­rent re­­gi­­ons of the world to of­­fer their own in­­ter­pre­ta­ti­­ons, their own na­r­ra­ti­­ves of the cur­rent si­tua­ti­o­n. The blog posts are dis­played in al­pha­be­ti­cal or­der of re­gi­ons, coun­tries and ci­ties. No­te: The in­­­for­­ma­ti­on pro­vi­­ded here re­­pres­ents the in­­­di­vi­­du­al opi­­ni­­ons and in­­­di­vi­­du­al ex­­pe­ri­ences of tho­­se per­­sons in­­ter­view­­e­d.
