Journey of Our Journal

UCI’s 2019-20 Dalai Lama Scholar project has launched a special edition journal titled Patience & Pandemic for students to explore the experience of a pandemic. The creative work featured in our journal expressed and record a perspective on the unprecedented reality of the quarantine. Questions such as: what is it like to live in suspense? How has staying at home changed your sense of space? Of time?

We invite you to buy and read the creative work of student's at UCI. We hope you enjoy!
