City governments are fighting on the frontline of the Coronavirus Pandemic. As local businesses shut down and greater numbers of people are in need of public assistance, cities and states are moving fast to figure out how to support their citizens in this difficult time. Local government officials are working to find the difficult balance between social distancing, stay-at-home orders, and planning to help local economies recover once the pandemic ends. Likewise, institutions of higher education are struggling to balance the health and safety of faculty, staff, and students, with the need to provide educational instruction, vital research, and healthcare services. How have these local institutions worked together to ensure a coordinated response to the Coronavirus pandemic?

Join Duke Science & Society and our expert panel as we discuss the how city governments are responding to the Coronavirus pandemic and how private institutions are working with local government officials to ensure a coordinated response.

Moderator & Panelists :
Mayor Pro Tempore of Durham, Jillian Johnson
Duke Vice President, Public Affairs and Government Relations, Michael J. Schoenfeld
Duke Science & Society Director, Professor of Law and Philosophy, Dr. Nita A Farahany

Coronavirus Conversations: A new, virtual event series from Duke Science & Society


As we practice social distancing, engage in online learning, and work remotely we are burdened with questions about how this pandemic is affecting our lives, the lives of those we love, and the society we are a part of. Over the course of this event series faculty and staff from Duke Science and Society will join academics, lawmakers, students, researchers, doctors, and others to shed some light on the events happening around us and what life will start to look like moving forward.

We will have moderated, casual lunch-time discussions with brief Q&A held via Zoom chat.
