Summer 2023 News & Events


Inconvenience versus Disruption 

The American Voices Project, the country’s first immersive-interviewing platform, is being used by scholars across the country to understand how people are making sense of our crisis-ridden world. In a recently released report, Corey Fields, Rahsaan Mahadeo, Lisa Hummel, and Sara Moore uncover profound racial differences in how Americans talk about the pandemic, with white people typically discussing how their everyday routines had to change (a “language of inconvenience”), and Black and Hispanic people instead focusing on financial strains, physical health problems, and fears of job loss (a “language of disruption”).
