Sensory history contribution to COVID-19 Archive

Description (Dublin Core)

These are the instuctions posted in Canvas for HST 643. Students enrolled in Global History Fall B at Arizona State University will all submit a story related to the pandemic and senory history
Sensescapes surround us. Every day we confront visual, audio, tactile, and olfactory information. We process that information as part of an experience. However, what gets remembered and preserved disproportionately are visual records, records of things people witnessed. Even today- video recordings and still images circulated over the internet.

Here's an example (Links to an external site.) of a submission I made to the archive.

For this assignment, you'll submit one item that captures a sensory memory that relates to the COVID-19 pandemic (other than sight). You'll submit your item to the COVID-19 Archive (Links to an external site.) on the "Share your Story Page." Include the the following metadata:
