The collection of texts we are creating here aims to formulate venues for future research...|
The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge that is testing our analytical frameworks and conceptual categories. All of our research topics are being subjected to pressures, transformations, and questionings that we will, in time, be able to analyze empirically.
For now, however, it is too early to draw conclusions or to make judgments. Likewise, we cannot yet tell whether our analytical frameworks and conceptual categories are still valid, or if to the contrary they must be reassessed in light of this unprecedented crisis. The singular nature of this crisis will itself be the subject of debate, to draw lessons and propose narratives.
The collection of texts we are creating here aims to formulate venues for future research. The short articles that compose this dossier explore a range of research themes that have long preoccupied us, but also addresses surprises, questions, and hypotheses that have arisen from the current situation. They propose a wide array of frameworks through which we will be able to make sense of things once the crisis is over, sketching out a horizon of research within which we will be able to work together.
