Special Series of Short Essays on the COVID-19 Pandemic


Dear Readers,

In addition to the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed academic research, JEA seeks to engage with the public debate in real-time and make timely contributions on critical issues, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. For this purpose, we now invite relevant submissions of essays (not peer-reviewed, but subject to editorial review). JEA is a multidisciplinary journal and in addition to classic anthropological and ethnographic contributions, we welcome submissions within the fields of other social sciences, humanities, philosophy and critical theory.

On behalf of the editorial board,

Tereza Kuldova, Jardar Østbø, Christin Thea Wathne, Aleksandra Bartoszko, Steve Hall, Mathew A. Varghese
