UBIAS network launches call for essays on a post-COVID-19 world

The global network for University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study, UBIAS, has an open call for essays on the theme ‘How will/should the world change? The corona crisis as an interdisciplinary challenge’.

2020.04.22 | Lena Bering

The call is open to researchers from all areas and countries. The articles will be published on the websites of the UBIAS network and on the blog Interdisciplinarity (https://zif.hypotheses.org/), managed by ZiF, Center for Interdisciplinary Research, at the University of Bielefeld.

For this current call for essays, the UBIAS network works in partnership with ZiF, who is also a member of UBIAS. If the received material is considered to be of high quality, it may later generate a publication by UBIAS.

Contributions should be written in English and have a maximum of 10,000 characters, including spaces, and should be submitted by e-mail to either zif@uni-bielefeld.de or ubiasnetwork@gmail.com by the end of May.
