Call for contributions: COVID19 and Environmental History - collection of essays

Over the past months, many scholars have been reflecting on the present ‘coronavirus-crisis’. The Journal for the History of Environment and Society, a fully open-access international peer-reviewed journal is searching for essays for a special issue on COVID-19 from the perspective of environmental history. We are aiming for a broad collection of shorter essays, starting from opinions, commentaries and blogs many historians and other scholars have written over the past months on pandemics in the past, and on what COVID-19 and past pandemics learn us about the relationship between society and nature….
 
With the JHES we are aiming to make a compilation of (excellent) historical essays on COVID-19 from the perspective of environmental history, starting from blogs, opinions, arguments which have already been written, turning them into 2000-4000 word essays. Of course other and new pieces are welcome as well (in English, French or German).
 
We aim for rapid publication, mainly targeting pieces which have already been written for a broader audience, and might be consolidated and upgraded into a 2000-4000 word essay, to be published in the peer-reviewed and open access  journal in September.

História de uma quarentena – a História (não) se repete / Story of a quarantine - how history (does not) repeats itself

“No Lazareto de Lisboa” – 1881

Tendo em mente a situação de confinamento em que nos temos encontrado, procuramos testemunhos de como outrora se viveram momentos semelhantes. Lembramos aqui a obra “No Lazareto de Lisboa”, uma publicação humorística e satírica da autoria de Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro a propósito da sua permanência no Lazareto, onde foi obrigado a cumprir quarentena devido ao perigo de propagação da febre-amarela, quando do seu regresso do Brasil, em 1879. Publicada em 1881, com textos e ilustrações de sua autoria, a obra “No Lazareto de Lisboa” relata em magistrais caricaturas as peripécias da sua estadia no Brasil e as saudosas recordações de Lisboa. A obra integral está disponível para consulta em:

http://hemerotecadigital.cm-lisboa.pt/RaridadesBibliograficas/NoLazaretodeLisboa/NoLazaretodeLisboa_master/NoLazaretodeLisboa.pdf

Considering the lockdown condition in which we are presently living, we looked for references on how people coped with these situations in the past. We present here, the humorous and satirical reportage from the renowned Portuguese artist Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, written during his stay on Lisbon lazaret (hospital for contagious illness), in a mandatory quarantine to avoid the spread of the yellow-fever, after his return from Brazil (1879). Published in 1881, “No Lazareto de Lisboa” (“The Lazaretto of Lisbon”) shows illustrations and caricatures and includes personal thoughts and anecdotes to depict the author’s adventures in Brazil and his quarantine in the lazaretto. The full book is available on:
