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.
