Over the course of the summer-fall 2020 Dr. Grossmann asked over 50 of the world’s leading scholars in behavioral and social sciences, along with futurists and disaster/crisis management scholars to share their thoughts on what effects COVID-19 pandemic will have on our societies. The goal was to create a time capsule of scientists’ hopes and worries at this critical moment in human history. My team subsequently set up interviews on an interactive portal, guided by results of analyses of core themes and interrelationships of different themes brought up by scholars.
We just released the portal and the results to the general public. You can find the interview at www.worldaftercovid.info (and shorter: www.wac2020.info ), and interactive visualizations here: www.igorgrossmann.com/wac. If you would like to get a better feel for the project, the recruitment method, cross-validated analytical procedure (including human-coded and natural language processing analyses), and detailed analyses, see here: https://github.com/grossmania/wac.
