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.

On behalf of the Editorial Board of Culture, Theory and Critique, I would like to provide an update on our journal’s operations during this difficult time. We recognise that many authors and reviewers will have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways and may thus not be able to meet deadlines or to carry out tasks that seemed entirely feasible but a few weeks ago at all. Please know that we understand entirely and reach out if ever you wish to discuss how we can work together for a positive result – and please forgive any automated reminders that still fly your way from our systems.

The global lockdown has made us confined to our primeval cave-like shelter of home. The postgobal earth is in suspended condition, as if it needs some time for hibernation. In the face of increasing number of death, we all are seeking solutions, exploring options and thinking of new patterns of life. Surely the world will change permanently after this and if we are fortunate enough to see the post-Corona world, we will reminisce about our pre-Corona days. In between, during the uncertain lockdown period, we expect humankind to respond to the pandemic in creative ways.

We are seeking submission of creative works for a Special Collection to be created from the submitted works in Continuous Publication mode.
