The ASA journal Contexts is working on a special online issue on “The Global Impact of the Coronavirus” and would once again be so grateful if your section could circulate our call for papers to help us reach a broader audience.
In early 2020, it became very clear that a new contagion had entered the human population and was spreading across the globe. The novel coronavirus, first appearing in China, has now spread throughout the world and threatens to kill thousands, possibly millions, of people. Consistent with our mission of bringing sociology to the public, Contexts Magazine: Sociology for the Public is issuing a call for papers that address the spread of this disease from a social science perspective. We are particularly interested in hearing from scholars across the world facing nuanced challenges in their own countries at the local, state, and national level.
We ask that authors send the editors an opinion piece of 500-1000 words by March 20, 2020 at 5pm to firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a preference for pieces that employ empirical data and/or policy approaches to illustrate how the rise of coronavirus impacts society and how social behaviors change the spread of the virus.
The call for papers is both attached to this email and accessible via link: https://contexts.org/blog/call-for-papers-the-global-impact-of-the-coronavirus/.
