To think through history as it unfolds by engaging in “unbearable story-telling” is the task at hand in Curriculum Studies in the Age of Covid-19. The author documents stories of Covid-19 both from the perspective of a university professor and from the frontlines as a hospital chaplain, interweaving autobiography with philosophy, fiction, theology, history, and memory, in order to articulate what is beyond language and develop an archive. The archive is not only about the past but how future generations will understand the past. This book might be of interest to educationists, curriculum studies scholars, philosophers, theologians, literary scholars, historians, medical anthropologists, bioethicists, health humanities scholars, and hospital chaplains as well as palliative care physicians and psychoanalysts.
