We publish short (10-12 minute) talks reflecting on an aspect of our shared situation from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary angles. Creative reflection, historical contextualization and comparison, philosophical and theoretical meditation, psychic and psychological exploration, ethnographic and experiential narrative, literary and aesthetic analysis: all and more is welcome. This is a space to think about life in the Time of Coronavirus, in all its human and humanist/post humanist permutations.
