Social Distances: Introduction

Social distance…it means more than just six feet apart. What other kinds of distances did we encounter during 2020 and beyond? Join Midstory as we interview experts in the humanities and delve into the kinds of distances that are, well…social—the gaps that have been exposed and widened amidst crisis, and how we’ve learned to bridge them. 

Each week, we look at a different cross section of society that has been impacted by the crisis, and unpack topics ranging from the environment, birth and death and shelter, to media, race relations and more through insights from historians, anthropologists, poets, policymakers and other experts.
