Special Issue "Pandemic and the City: Urban Issues in the Context of COVID-19"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
The impact of COVID-19 is immense. This special issue seeks to generate discussion on its urban impacts. We seek contributions that look at the short- and long-term effects. In the short-term, cities have slowed down while distancing has changed the look and experience of urban living. Over the longer term, the pandemic raises important issues of future forms including but not limited to: public spaces, transportation, social difference as the virus reveals new and entrenched inequalities, precarity, issues of data collection, surveillance, and cities and connectivity. The issue will also look for papers on how this pandemic compares and contrasts with pandemics in cities of the past.
