In this, the second session of the Permanent Ordinary Seminar, Pablo Santoro Domingo and Carmen Romero Bachiller present Sociología (y docencia) Ordinaria en tiempos de COVID. The Permanent Ordinary Seminar is a public collaborative programme by Bulegoa z/b and Sociología Ordinaria which will run in 2020-2021 via a series of conversations and encounters both online and in person.
ORDINARY SOCIOLOGY (AND TEACHING) IN TIMES OF COVID
As is obvious to all of us, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic apply not only to macrosociological dimensions or the more concrete realm of health. They have brutally impacted each one of our daily lives. To avoid getting lost in broad speculations, we need to take a look at the “ordinary” aspects of COVID; at everything relating to the virus that orders and disorders our everyday surroundings. We, in particular, wish to emphasize how our work in education and the lives of the young people we accompany through university have been affected. In order to do so we will essentially be reflecting on the experiences we shared with them in the Spring 2020 lockdown. We will present some of the initiatives we carried out with our students, which we think might help us consider how to “ordinarily” reformulate teaching practice in these times.
