Glass House Presents at New Canaan Library: “On Pandemic Domesticity”
February 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
How does the current pandemic – and how did past epidemics – impact the design of our homes and living arrangements? The collaborative series, “Glass House Presents at New Canaan Library,” will explore the topic with the live webinar ‘On Pandemic Domesticity,” presented on Wednesday, February 24 at 7 PM EST. Zoom sign in information will be provided upon registration at newcanaanlibrary.org.
The current pandemic has put enormous pressure on domestic life, with more people spending more time at home than ever before. That raises the question of how the design, function, and meaning of the home might alter in a post-pandemic future. And, how did the design and use of the home change in response to previous epidemics? These questions and more will be addressed by Columbia literature professor Victoria Rosner and architect and Yale professor Joel Sanders; the conversation will be moderated by Cole Akers, curator for The Glass House.
