As the ground shifts beneath us, Covid has a particular and general way it has moved us into a new reality. In March 2020 CUNY underwent a massive migration to the digital sphere. Working from home, sheltering through the global crisis, and managing the new reality are all significant contexts that shape teaching and learning. These conversations capture moments in this new dystopian reality as we shift our teaching practices and live, together and alone, through the pandemic. We discuss the role of tone and body language, touch and intimacy, seeing students holistically, and more.
