Ohio Wesleyan professor Bob Gitter (economics) talks about “Sixty to Zero in Nothing Flat: The Impact of COVID on the American Economy and the Prospects for Recovery”
The OWU faculty is offering a free 10-week course – titled “We’re in This Together: An Interdisciplinary Exploration of the Coronavirus Pandemic” – beginning the week of April 27 and concluding the week of June 30. It will meet virtually twice a week – at 4 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays – and use lectures, panel discussions, and class questions to explore the lasting effects of COVID-19 on the global society.
Each of the twice-a-week sessions will be either a single 30-40-minute lecture or a panel discussion lasting up to 75 minutes. Optional “Meet the Profs” sessions with that week’s presenters will be held at 4 p.m. Thursdays (for students) and at noon Fridays (all others).
The course will be conducted on Ohio Wesleyan’s YouTube Channel, and recordings of all presentations will be posted following the live events. Anyone may listen to the lectures and discussions live or recorded without registration.
