A Note on the Pandemic from Institute Director Richard K. Betts
March 30, 2020
The Saltzman Institute is as disrupted as most organizations in the face of the current pandemic but will strive to manage the situation in the way that preserves as much normal activity as possible. Dispersed as we now are, our scholars remain energetic, productive, and inventive. As with the rest of the world, most of the institute’s normal activity must be curtailed this spring. It may prove feasible to mount some of our planned events “virtually” and in any case we will be at full throttle again as soon as conditions permit — a big unknown, of course, at present. SIWPS wishes all of you good luck and hopes that we will all be back to, if not normal, a new level of intellectual ferment as soon as possible.
