Concept Note: Papers are invited for a special issue of Café Dissensus on the topic of Pandemics in Twentieth and Twenty-first century European and Indian Literature. The essays might explore the topic of pandemics (diseases, plagues, etc.) as well as the psychological dimensions of the threats to human health and survival posed by pandemics. Papers might address some of the following questions:

How did authors continue to work and write at the time of pandemics?
How have pandemics been represented in European and Indian Literature and Culture?
How can European and Indian Literature and Culture contribute to quarantine time?
Should we consider a new European and Indian pandemic theory/culture respectively in the era of Covidocene as a new sub-form of the era of Anthropocene?

This issue of Café Dissensus intends to focus on various dimensions of pandemics in European and Indian Literature and we aim to provide a broader scientific and cultural context for it. To cover the global scope of the topic, we seek contributions from around the world. Submission should be approximately 2000-2500 words. Please do provide a brief bio at the end of your piece.

Since the magazine is geared toward academic as well as non-academic readers, the citations within the body of the articles must be minimal, in the form of the name of an author or an idea, etc. The issue is planned for online publication in January, 2021. The call targets an academic and professional audience and all papers should follow the journal’s guidelines of submissions and policy. Please do not hesitate to contact the guest editor with any queries you might have.

Last date for submission: 30 November, 2020; Date of publication: 1 January, 2021
