Covid-19 has upended daily life with nations struggling to stop the spread of this deadly virus. The closure of factories, offices, cafes, schools, theatres, sportsgrounds and stores has thrown millions out of work and economies into a tailspin. With no effective treatment identified and a vaccine months or years away – if ever – governments grapple with conflicting priorities and concerns. There are no easy answers and the threat looms of a deep and long-lasting recession. The virus has reconfigured so many things but has it changed everything? Contributors are invited to consider the post-pandemic world from a broad range of perspectives including but not limited to economics, public policy, population health, law, philosophy, epidemiology, international relations, history, politics, digital humanities, cyber security, and sociology.
