Stories Of COVID™ is an anthropological study documenting the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic through individual interviews to be published in a book for future generations.

Listen to the Interviews







Stories of COVID™ is curated by anthropologist and author Veronica Kirin.

The Stories of COVID™ interviews are an anthropological study (ie. ethnography) of the pandemic. As an anthropologist studying paradigm shifts, Kirin understood that the pandemic was a historic moment that needed to be documented. Interviews center around layoffs, testing, access (or lack thereof) to ill family members, shifts toward remote work, government actions, social isolation, disparities, the use of technology to manage it all, and more.
