Northwestern University's ETOPiA (Engineering Transdisciplinary Outreach Project in the Arts) presents:

Science Under a Pandemic 

Two original one-act plays by Northwestern-educated playwrights examining the challenges of research under a pandemic will be premiered online. The plays, commissioned to be performed via a Zoom-like web interface, explore original humanizing perspectives on research directly or indirectly impacted by a pandemic outbreak. 

After the performance, the playwrights and Northwestern researchers will discuss the works.  

This event is supported by Northwestern University through the Barry and Mary Ann MacLean Fund for Art & Engineering, the James F. and Mary L. Gibbons Art and Technology Fund, the Materials Research Center NSF-MRSEC grant, the International Institute for Nanotechnology, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the National Science Foundation through grants DMR-1720139, DMREF-1729016 and ECCS‐1912694
