Archiving COVID-19 is a virtual exhibition of archival collections created by students in Georgetown University's HIST 129 (Modern South Asia) and HIST 224 (Women, Film and Indian History), offered during the spring semester of 2020 by Dr. Ananya Chakravarti. As students of history, we created this archive of the present as a lasting record of an event of world historical importance.

Collections documenting the corporate and economic response to the pandemic
Collections that use art to document the virus
