Faculty speak with WVII about including COVID-19 content in courses 

WVII (Channel 7) reported that University of Maine faculty are incorporating COVID-19-related content in multiple courses. History professor Liam Riordan said that it’s important to think about dramatic continuities across time to “understand our own moment.” Associate professor of political science and international policy Kristin Vekasi said seizing the opportunity to learn about the coronavirus gives students the ability to interpret data in order to benefit people. And philosophy lecturer Derek Michaud said responding to the pandemic in this way “gives us a nice window to how well religious traditions, like any living tradition, adapt.”
