In May 2021, a Double Issue of the leading journal, Cultural Studies, which collects 31 insightful and punchy essays to examine a variety of critical concerns surrounding COVID from many parts of the world, has been published: Erni, John N. & Striphas, Ted (Special Issue Editors) (2021). Special issue on “The Cultural Politics of COVID-19,” Cultural Studies, 35(2-3). The essays were grouped to explore 3 major conjunctural politics of COVID: racialization; data/media/the popular; and perplexing epistemologies. Routledge has agreed to provide FREE ACCESS TO ALL OF THE ESSAYS in this Double Issue (until June 30th): https://www.
“It is hoped that this Special Issue provides not only a sort of memory archive for what the world has gone through in 2020–21, but also hopefully some intellectual guidance for the way forward,” Erni and Striphas (“Introduction: COVID-19, the multiplier”)
