Call for Papers: How Will/Should the World Change?

Friday, 29 May 2020, 9 – 10am

Call for Papers: How Will/Should the World Change?

Please see below call for papers/essays for a blog run by The Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF), the Institute for Advanced Study of Bielefeld University, from the UBIAS network.

How will/should the world change? The corona crisis as an interdisciplinary challenge
The corona crisis not only challenges disease control and crisis management, but may also have long-term and far-reaching impacts on states, societies and international cooperation. There are increasing indications that the world will look different after the crisis and that globalization will be questioned in many areas. According to these observations, the corona crisis would mark a turning point. In times of deep uncertainty, science is asked to look to the future and to flank a rational discourse about how to react to the current global crisis, and therefore now better cope with other tantamount global challenges such as the climate change.

Since this challenge is genuinely interdisciplinary, UBIAS could make a contribution with its contacts to interdisciplinary and international scientific communities.The idea is to present scientific essays (max. 10,000 characters incl. spaces) from different disciplines in the blog Interdisciplinarity, which is run by ZiF, over the next few weeks. These essays will sharpen our view of the current situation and contribute to the debate about necessary structural changes. For this purpose, scholars (UBIAS Fellows and others) from different disciplines and countries will be addressed. Contributions can be submitted in English. If the quality of the contributions suggests it, a subsequent UBIAS publication could also be considered.

Please submit your paper until the end of May latest to or
