Narratives of Covid: Loss, Dying, Death and Grief during Covid-19

How have you experienced loss and grief during COVID-19?

The pandemic has brought loss, death, and change to everyday life on a global scale. Join us for an evening of reflection and discussion as we share Narratives of COVID and question what it means to live and die during the pandemic.

About the book: it is a collection of narrative responses in the form of essays, poems, and reflections from Open University students, staff, and alumni across the UK and beyond are brought together, to document a powerful reflection of the impact of COVID on individuals and wider society.

Although the book started primarily as a way of collating narratives from across the UK and beyond, what has emerged is much more than just some words on a page. This edited collection captures a moment in time, highlighting some of the many different experiences that arose from individual circumstances. The experiences shared here resonate beyond The Open University and the UK. Collectively, it provides an important space for alternative voices and shared grief, while simultaneously allowing readers to process emotions related to the impact the pandemic has had on many.
