Call for Proposals: #RecordCovid19: Historicizing Experiences of the Pandemic

We are looking for interesting and innovative proposals for a new book about historical perspectives on the Covid-19 pandemic.

For a new edited collection based on the #RecordCovid19 Project we are inviting contributors to submit proposals historicizing the experience of the pandemic.

We particularly seek chapters based around themes that emerge from the first-hand accounts submitted to #RecordCovid19 as well as wider research. Contributors will ideally come from a range of disciplines including history, sociology, political science, linguistics, and media studies. Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome. Proposals should be inspired but not limited by the themes arising from the #RecordCovid19 Project.

If you would like to submit a proposal or manuscript please contact Dr Kristopher Lovell ( or De Gruyter Acquisition Editor Rabea Rittgerodt (

Proposals for chapters are welcome by early career scholars as well as established researchers alike. Final chapters should be around 4,500 – 5,000 words.

Proposal Deadline: 20 November 2020

Final deadline for completed chapters: 1 March 2021
