For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, doctoral students at The Lisbon Consortium encourage scholars, artists and other cultural practitioners from around the world to reflect further on the impacts of this bewildering new reality.

We welcome contributions of any length in the following formats:


Personal reflections, cultural critique and analysis, adaptations or excerpts of larger research projects. Please write for a general audience and avoid too much academic jargon.


Creative responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, including prose and poetry of all genres.

Visual essays

All combinations of photography (or other visual material) and text are welcome. Please indicate any specific layout requirements an we will try to accommodate.

Please also include a short biography of no more than 100 words!
