COVID-19 affected what we research and how we do our research. In the spring of 2020, fieldwork was cancelled, labs were off limits, and conferences cancelled. The amount of time many colleagues had to devote to their research was drastically reduced owing to caring responsibilities and the need to develop online teaching materials. Two years on, what are the impacts on research careers? How has the way we do our research changed? Has it changed what we research? And how can we work to ensure that the long-term effects of the pandemic on research careers are not disproportionately felt by certain groups of colleagues? Join us to discuss these issues and many more.
