Communication Pedagogy: The Coronavirus Pandemic
Arnett, Ronald C.
Journal of Communication Pedagogy, v3 p5-10 2020
In this historical moment defined by the coronavirus (COVID-19), the global community struggles with and against a seemingly invisible foe. Students, faculty, and administrators open the blinds on windows in the morning, witnessing the brightness of the sun and seemingly the clarity of a morning welcome. Yet, there lurks, not in the shadows, but in the brightness of the everyday sunshine, the possibility of sickness and death. This responsive essay weaves together my communicative rejoinders to the coronavirus and its implications for this challenging time in human history. I turn to the autoethnographic insights of Bochner and Ellis (2016) to frame the theoretical rationale for a conversation that rests within the dialectic of fear and tenacious hope.
