Families, Communities, and Nation States in the COVID-19 Pandemic

Chinese Sociological Review (CSR) accepts proposals for a Special Issue on Families, Communities, and Nation States in the COVID-19 Pandemic. The deadline by which proposals should be sent to this special issue’s editorial team is April 26th, 2020. We have a preference for proposals that draw on sociological perspectives to explain the varying responses and/or analyze social impacts of COVID-19 in different countries, with Chinese societies as the focal point of analysis.

Therefore, we issue this urgent call to sociologists/social scientists around the world: We invite you to offer theoretical and empirical insights to explain the diverse responses to, and implications of, this global crisis across societies. We are particularly interested in manuscripts that address the following questions:

  • How do families, communities, and nation states respond to the pandemic?
  • What are the roles that social institutions play in helping local citizens cope with the outbreak?
  • What are the social impacts of the pandemic on families, communities, and nation states?
