Journal of Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Scholarship

Document Type



Evaluating COVID 19 in its entirety is an enormous undertaking--one which will take many years and many scholars from every academic discipline to fully convey the impact of this disaster. In this three-part Special Issue of the Journal of Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Scholarship, we present current understandings of the immediate impact of COVID 19. The authors of these contributions participated in a webinar series produced by the University of San Francisco’s Center for Teaching Excellence and Center for Research, Artistic, and Scholarly Excellence in March through May 2020. Scholars from various academic sub-disciplines were invited to discuss the impact of COVID 19 through the perspectives of their research expertise.

We would like to thank Sarah Capitelli, Eugene Kim, Nischa Jaster, and Anastasia Vrachnos for their collaborative efforts and support.
