    Dear colleagues,

    As the world is coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, many journalists and political pundits are wondering about the societal and psychological changes that could follow the current crisis. To get a better picture of how psychologists think about pandemic-related cultural change, we designed a short 8-10 min survey asking social scientists (faculty and graduate students) about their pandemic-related forecasts now. After collecting the data, we hope to provide a summary to interested scientists and the general public.

    This is a short survey, on topics that may be on many people's minds. We sent out a similar survey a month ago, if you participated in that, we'd appreciate your participation again.

    Should you have any questions about participating in this survey, you can contact me at Igor Grossmann at

    Best wishes and stay safe!
