    What does COVID-19 mean for universities?
    ‘The New Social Contract‘ is a podcast that examines how the relationship between universities, the state and the public might be reshaped as we live through this global pandemic.

    Universities have existed for close to a thousand years. Across the centuries they have been places for making sense of the world and for shaping it.

    But it would be a mistake to see universities as static and unchanging.

    Under the pressures of war, political rupture and social and economic demands, they’ve often been remade. So, is this what we’re experiencing now, as COVID-19 rips through our lives?
