Corona Epidemic: Social, Economic and Ecological Issues


Call for Book Chapters  

The novel coronavirus epidemic has challenged the path of human growth. It has reassured mankind why development and not growth should be of primary concern for humanity. Ever since the onset of the industrial revolution, ecology and social wellbeing have been compromised for the economy. However, with the epidemic challenging the economic structure, it begets humankind to find sustainable solutions that balance all these three facets of industrial growth, ecological sustainability and social wellbeing.

We are interested in papers which explore a diverse array of social developments, economies and ecologies in the wake of the novel coronavirus. We understand that the crises of our contemporary world reach far into the intricacies and intimacy of daily life.  How can the writings on our specific themes influence not only subject matter but also the practice of writing?  We would especially encourage papers which consider a display of radical, indefinable openness regarding textuality as an interrelated system of parts that constantly shift and evolve, and which critically analyze the prevailing situation with an aim to suggest some remedial steps.  We have planned a volume which contains papers with innovative ideas and originality of thought.  Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about the topic or would like to run an idea by us before submitting a manuscript.
