Please join ISA's Interdisciplinary Studies Section on February 17th, 2021 as it hosts a webinar on “Covid-19 as global social actor: Social transformation in the wake of the Pandemic.” The Covid-19 virus is becoming a major social actor, precipitation transformations in social practices and institutions both within states and globally. We are hearing about the economic impact of the pandemic, but less about the social transformations that it affects. Presenters will address particular social effects drawing implications for more widespread global effects. Issues addressed (among others): technology innovation in India, public health infrastructure in Greece, science in Brazil, and the politics of social support systems in Russia.

Please join ISA's Global Health Studies Section on January 20th, 2021 as it hosts a webinar on "Exploring IR Research Related to the COVID-19 Pandemic." Over the past year we have witnessed a novel coronavirus infect millions of people, killing hundreds of thousands, and impacting the wellbeing of billions worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the critical role of politics and policy at both the domestic and international level in preventing and controlling global health risks. The outbreak provides endless research opportunities for international relations scholars interested in power, agency, multilateralism, human security, public-private partnerships, gender, communications, and much more. This webinar presents two current research projects related to COVID-19 before facilitating a broader discussion about how IR scholars can examine the global COVID crisis.

International Studies Perspectives is pleased to announce a second call for applications to our Twitter Takeover initiative. At regular intervals throughout the year, ISP intends to hand over the use of our Twitter platform to elevate Black, minority, and under-represented voices in our discipline in order to share research, spotlight the work of others, and share insights on and raise awareness of antiracism, diversity, fairness, and inclusiveness in international studies. If you are interested in participating in this initiative, email us at ISP@tcu.edu. We are reviewing applications for the next takeover through January 15.
