The political narrative of immigration trends is that people are fleeing their countries to exploit American resources. Immigrants are generally depicted as violent, the cause of crime and job loss, not only in America but around the world. The undercover criminal narrative overshadows that of the risk-taker, willing to leave what is familiar to improve the life of his or her family. The stereotype of violent behavior overshadows the violence enacted upon them by their host countries which have put many immigrants in the situations they are in today. It is well documented that immigrants, and especially undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes.

The novel coronavirus has thrown life out of gear throughout the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has ignited a health crisis that has affected almost all major countries, forcing them to impose a full or partial lockdown in their respective territories. In such a situation “social distancing” seems to be the buzzword and the only solution to survival. It is during these critical times that technology is playing a major role in keeping life moving. Undoubtedly, various innovative technologies have helped in fighting this pandemic on all the fronts.

Essays can deal with any of the Nordic countries and focus on translation, performance and/or aspects of influence on particular Nordic authors.
