This project, completed virtually, developed an online archive containing the stories of people working during the COVID-19 pandemic. In our research, we found that few records of the experiences of average people living during past pandemics exist today. In order to preserve the experiences of people living through the current pandemic, we interviewed twelve non-medical essential workers. In an effort to find themes in their experiences, our team coded the stories told in the transcripts. While each interviewee had a unique experience, common threads emerged around selflessness, social strain, and fear. A deeper analysis can be found at wp.wpi.edu/perspectives.
