The Class of 2020: Parents’ Perspectives of the Pomp and Terrible Circumstances — 2020 was an unprecedented year of challenges and perseverance. Parents were hit especially hard as they tried to juggle jobs while providing virtual school for their children. Join Michelle Napierski-Prancl, PhD, Professor of Sociology and Faculty Director of the Women’s Institute at Russell Sage College for a virtual Zoom meeting at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 10. Dr. Napierski-Prancl is currently co-editing a book Persevering During the Pandemic: Communication, Creativity and Connection (2022), in which she pens a chapter based on her interviews with parents of Class of 2020 students from all around the country. They describe what it was like to parent their children after schools shut down and important rituals like prom and graduation were cancelled or celebrated virtually.
