The network is forwarding the following message by professor Liz Stanley of the Edinburgh University:
“‘Edinburgh Decameron: Lockdown Sociology at Work’ has now been in active existence for around four weeks. It can be accessed at https://blogs.ed.ac.uk/ed-decameron/ . Since last Friday, there has been an array of contributions, among which we hope you will find items of interest:
· Sophia Woodman shared “Wet markets are among my favourite places to shop”
· Leanne Clapperton wrote about Dying
· Morena Tartari told her story of The Will
· The Armchair Sociology conversations have continued, with the most recent involving Liz Stanley talking to Nicolas Zehner about the before and possible futures of Covid-19 and to Eve Livingston about The pandemic state & its curious UK contradictions
· Mary Holmes has provided some thoughts on Are students customers?
· Liz Stanley has posted on What does Covid-19 look like?, on ‘The science’: some sociological reflections and on Pandemics in past times – a rogues gallery
If you have a past or present and close or distant Edinburgh connection (for this is not god’s eye news from nowhere) and would like to contribute a story, account or moment of your own, perhaps an insight, analysis, poem, podcast or photography, then please get in touch. Details are on the website.
The posts also all have a ‘comment’ function. Please do make use of this if you want to take part in, or start, discussions on the different topics.
Best wishes on behalf of the Edinburgh Decameron team
