Covid-19 has changed all of our lives and will continue to be a defining feature of 2020. The editors of the RCC seeingthewoods blog are seeking submissions for a blog series related to the pandemic and environmental concerns. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  •         pandemics in social and environmental history
  •         the “new normal” and the climate emergency
  •         the source of our current pandemic and lessons for the future
  •         conceptual frameworks for understanding the pandemic
  •         the future of globalization in the context of pandemics
  •         animals, humans, and disease
  •         the politics of pandemics and environmental concerns

The seeingthewoods blog aims to demonstrate the relevancy and importance of instilling a humanistic perspective into discussion about today’s environmental challenges. It is aimed at a general audience. Submissions should, therefore, be written in an engaging tone and avoid the use of academic jargon.

Submission details

  • Please submit a brief outline of the proposed blog post to [email protected]
  • Final submissions should be no longer than 1,500 words and avoid the use of academic jargon.
  • Authors are asked, where possible, to submit a copyright-free feature image with their submission.
  • Upon acceptance of the submission, a date for publication will be agreed upon (see attached blog prospectus).

We look forward to hearing from you.
