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).
