  • Mental health, COVID-19, and the body 
  • Addiction treatment during the pandemic 
  • Protesting and police brutality 
  • Black Lives Matter Movement –local (US) and global (internationally)
  • Coronavirus, vaccines, and the body 
  • Physical distancing and social connectedness  
  • Video Technology and the body 

Please submit your contact information, abstract, and paper as a word document to Michelle Filling-Brown, Ph.D. at michelle@bodystudiesjournal.org.  Citation style must be APA, MLA, or Chicago (please use the style that is appropriate for the discipline of your paper).  The selected citation style must be indicated with your submission and strict adherence to the selected citation is the responsibility of the author.  Deadline for submissions: December 31, 2020.
