In partnership with NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, Civic Signals, and the Knight Foundation, the Social Science Research Council is pleased to co-sponsor “The Shift,” a series of discussions exploring the social implications of the shifts occurring in U.S. public life in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. How is the pandemic affecting public-ness? What old or new role does digital space play in post-pandemic society? How do these dynamics relate to racial justice movements? “The Shift” series features researchers, practitioners, and activists in conversation about these and related questions.
