RC09 Newsletter 2020-1: Pandemic Diaries is out now!

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to making this new issue possible!
From India to Brazil, we heartfully thank every academic that shared their experiences during this global health crisis.
“As we all suffer from the same pandemic, the suffering reminds us that we are members of a common humanity. All over the world, countries have been exposed to lockdown of their societies to protect their health with huge socio-economic consequences.
(…) We are living through one of the greatest challenges of history and are supposed to create the future in this unique world that for the first time unify us against a common enemy. People are looking to science for a possible solution to overcome the crisis. But in this world of uncertainty, many are also turning to faith and spirituality that may assist them to overcome the pains and trauma of the pandemic.”
From Remarks of the RC09 Co-Chairs: Ulrike Schuerkens and Habibul Khondker
