What are our dreams trying to tell us each night? Do we take the daily anxieties of our waking lives into our dream states? How does this all apply to dreams during the COVID-19 pandemic? What do their metaphors tell us about our deeper unconscious experiences of these times? What techniques can influence our dreams away from repetitive anxiety and toward creative problem solving?

Deirdre Barrett, PhD, is on the faculty of Harvard and is the author of The Committee of Sleep and the forthcoming Pandemic Dreams. She has spent decades researching and teaching the science of dreams, examining the impacts of current events and societal catastrophes- including a study of 9/11 survivors. As we find ourselves in the middle of a global pandemic, Dr. Barrett is studying the outbreak of COVID-19 dreams around the world. Join the Museum of Science and Dr. Barrett for an exploration of the scientific and psychological meanings of our dreams, and learn more about her current study of dreaming during COVID times.
