    Covering Coronavirus: Connection in the time of pandemic

    In this episode, we examine two connections shown in dramatic ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. First, the connection between humankind and the planet: We speak with a climate scientist on how the economic shut down is impacting the planet, and how coronavirus could be a template for the fight against climate change.

    Then, we explore the connection between doctor and patient, and how the science of compassion is on full display.

    Jason McLachlan, associate professor of biological sciences

    Dominic Vachon; John G. Sheedy, M.D., Director of the Ruth M. Hillebrand Center for Compassionate Care

    Office Hours: Women's Suffrage and Political Barbies

    Office Hours: Women's Suffrage and Political Barbies

    Introducing Office Hours, a new series from Notre Dame Stories. We’re visiting scholars in their workspaces to discuss their research...and whatever else we happen to find there. In the first episode we drop in on political science professor Christina Wolbrecht. She’s co-authored a book titled, “A Century of Votes for Women,” which looks at how women have used their right to vote in the hundred years since the 19th Amendment was passed.

    Tantur: Hill in the Holy Land, Episode 4: Oasis

    Tantur: Hill in the Holy Land, Episode 4: Oasis

    In the final episode of this four-part series, we explore Tantur using two interpretations of a commonly used metaphor for the place: an oasis. Many people describe the Tantur grounds in terms of its tranquility, beauty and peace. That is certainly true. But the literal definition of an oasis is “a fertile spot.” We’ll explain how Notre Dame at Tantur has become a place where seeds are planted and meet a Tantur “alumna” who views her time there as a pivot point in her career. And, we’ll explore what the University is planning to do to plant more seeds over the next 50 years.

    Tantur: Hill in the Holy Land, Episode 3: The Fifth Gospel

    Tantur: Hill in the Holy Land, Episode 3: The Fifth Gospel

    St. Jerome, who famously translated the Bible into Latin working from the same cave system in which Jesus was born, said: “Five gospels record the life of Jesus. Four you will find in books and the one you will find in the land they call Holy. Read the fifth gospel and the world of the four will open to you.”

    In the third episode of this four-part series, we visit St. Jerome’s study in Bethlehem with a group of Notre Dame students in the Holy Land for a summer study program. Their time in Bethlehem, Jerusalem and other key sites in Israel was a transformative experience, and not just in religious terms. “People come here to see the holy sites,” observed University of Notre Dame at Tantur academic director Hannah Hemphill, “but while they see the old stones, they fail to see the living stones, the people who are living in the land today.”

    As Notre Dame students explore Israel and the West Bank, they’re exposed to different narratives about the current conflict in the region, and are forced to square the reality they’ve heard back home with the one they’re seeing firsthand.
