In Spring 2020, the Institute for Social Responsibility asked the Edge Hill University research community to submit articles on a range of issues detailing how the pandemic has affected their field. They responded with a range and depth of posts so vast that it now stands as an historic document charting our immediate response to the pandemic.

We then turned our attention to the international perspective. A pandemic is by its very nature global, or at least transboundary. To capture this, we asked the EHU research community to seek out the views of their international partners and collaborators, to reveal the similarities and differences to the pandemic response.

We are now looking to capture the longer term impact of the pandemic – and so invite all members of the EHU community to make a contribution reflecting their field of expertise.

As before, each post is apolitical yet provocative, and approximately 500 words. All submissions will be moderated.

You can also add your own response to any post – but please ensure that comments are also both measured and apolitical!

If you would like to submit a post – please do so via
