This exhibit explores how UNO undergraduate students returned back to campus following the remote learning of the pandemic. It uses photovoice — a participatory research approach that uses photo-journaling to communicate lived experiences that may be difficult to express in words alone.
During the project, a diverse group of nine undergraduate students participated in photovoice, making photographs, and writing accompanying journal entries about their everyday experiences of returning to campus life for four weeks in November 2021. The exhibit features a selection of student photo-journal entries to highlight their lives as students living through a pandemic that brought unprecedented challenges to undergraduate education.
The Osborne Family Gallery is located on the main floor of the library and follows library hours.
This project was led by UNO Medical Humanities faculty members Dr. Allison Schlosser and Dr. Peter Szto with the generous support of the UNO Medical Humanities Program, the Sociology & Anthropology Department, and the College of Arts & Sciences.
