In ‘A Day at a Time’ we think through the lens of time to make sense of the experience of the pandemic. COVID-19 has changed time as we know it, in ways that are both prosaic and extraordinary. It is too soon to know whether the COVID-19 pandemic will come to be seen as an episode, event, shock, crisis, emergency, turning point, new epoch, ongoing experience of liminality. Time is key to how the pandemic has reconfigured everyday life, and in so doing has highlighted already existing differences and inequalities.
