This beautifully captures a particular moment, as we all came to terms with the new situation. It was also a way of keeping in contact with one another and building community even though we couldn’t meet in person.
Some poems are very moving, as people describe their longings to be with loved ones far away. Others are more light-hearted. There is a whole series of limericks, with a first line of “There once was a tutor/student on Zoom”.
You can also read a short interview with Paul Stephenson and myself on the Maastricht University website. Together with Eva Durlinger and John Parkinson, we coordinated the production of this booklet.
