Cross-Workshop Reflections

By Scott A. Tyson, University of Rochester

In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic affected academic life in various ways. Among other concerns, the pandemic changed the way that research seminars were conducted. I helped to transition two preexisting seminars from in-person to virtual formats and also co-organized a virtual seminar that was created in response to the pandemic. As the restrictions associated with COVID-19 ease and in-person seminars return (at least partially), it is important to assess what we, as a community of scholars, learned from our experience of moving seminars online. More important, we have an imperative to ensure that the lessons that virtual seminars have taught us are not lost.
