For a new edited collection with De Gruyter based on the #RecordCovid19 Project we are inviting contributors to submit proposals historicizing the experience of the pandemic. We particularly seek chapters based around themes that emerge from the first-hand accounts submitted to #RecordCovid19 as well as wider research. Contributors will ideally come from a range of disciplines including history, sociology, political science, linguistics, and media studies. Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome. Proposals should be inspired but not limited by the themes arising from the #RecordCovid19 Project.


Proposals for chapters are welcome by early career scholars as well as established researchers alike. Final chapters should be around 4,500 – 5,000 words.


Details of the #RecordCovid19 project can be found at:   


Proposal Deadline: 20 November 2020


For proposals accepted the final deadline for completed chapters:
1 March 2021
