The Annual Reeves Lecture by Professor of English and George B. and Willma Reeves Distinguished Professor in the Liberal Arts, Jeffrey Hammond.

“Memento Mori: A Journal of the Plague Year”

In addition to changing our everyday lives in so many ways, the coronavirus pandemic has exposed problematic issues involving our country’s social and political health. Our fragmented responses to covid-19, especially the extent to which the virus was politicized, reveal serious flaws in a number of key American institutions. In this year’s Reeves Lecture, Professor Hammond reflects on what the pandemic has taught us about our economy, technology, politics, educational system, and national self-image.

Campus visitors must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and be able to present proof of vaccination upon request by College officials when attending indoor events or large gatherings outside when social distancing cannot be ensured. If campus visitors are not vaccinated or cannot show proof of vaccination, they must present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival to campus. Face coverings must be always worn indoors.
