COVID-19 presents an unparalleled opportunity for instructors to practice the integrated and holistic education that is at the heart of Baylor’s liberal arts tradition. Not only is the study of pandemic “relevant” for our students, but it is a window into the deepest concerns at the intersection of the natural world and human meaning-making. No academic discipline escapes its reach. In this SET, distinguished Baylor colleagues will discuss approaches and perspectives on exploring pandemic with students through the materials of philosophy, literature, history, religion, biology, and more.
