Call for Papers - 2K: COVID-19 and Media
Media are central to the COVID-19 pandemic. They are implicated in
the ways information and emotions are communicated and/or obscured;
how individuals connect when they can no longer meet face-to-face;
the ways different forms of expertise and diverse viewpoints come
together, compete, or are neglected in the public sphere; what new
and newly abundant data are available for collection and put to new
uses by government and corporations, among other things. To that end,
we invite 250-word abstracts for a special 2K issue on "COVID-19 and
We welcome proposals that in some way address how
media--professionals, content, publics, institutions, and
platforms--shape the understanding and response to COVID-19, as well
as the potential longer-term implications of media-related issues and
responses to the pandemic.
In an effort to facilitate timely publication,
the deadline for abstracts is April 5.
The final essays will be due May 1.
Please send abstracts and/or questions to
Matthew Powers (mjpowers at uw.edu) and
Adrienne Russell (adruss at uw.edu).
