Forthcoming Issue: Living through COVID, looking beyond COVID

Consensus is excited to announce a special issue entitled Living through COVID, looking beyond COVID: how has the current pandemic altered your approach to your work? The COVID-19 pandemic has altered all walks of life indefinitely, and we have had to adapt to a changing landscape without much of a handbook or manual. For example, in higher education, the move from face to face learning to remote learning had to be done within a matter of days. While the effects of the pandemic have been challenging, they have also allowed us to re-imagine and reconstrue our ways of being. While we anticipate one day (soon!) moving to a post-pandemic world, there is value in understanding the challenges and opportunities that COVID presented, in order to help us reshape our future approaches to work.

We seek contributions from scholars from around the world to address this question from their contexts and/or practices. Contributors are invited to write on any topic related to the theme, including but not limited to:

  • Climate change and eco-civilizations
  • Economic Recovery
  • Health and wellness
  • Higher Education
  • Media, Technology and Spirituality
  • Politics and Policies
  • Physical and mental health
  • Personal and Professional relationships
  • Religion and Spirituality
  • Tourism, Culture and the arts

Please contact the editors with any of your ideas or questions.

The deadline for submission is June 15, 2021. Please send your submissions as an MS Word attachment to Mary Philip (Joy) and Greg Sennema. Please see our Submission rules and requirements.
