Pandemic Education: A Double Issue of Knowledge Cultures

Pandemic education refers not only to how we educate ourselves and others about the pandemic, but also – and more importantly – to how the pandemic educates us. To put it in the terms of the question that the articles in these two special issues on pandemic education address: how can educators explore and enact a philosophy of education that speaks to the care, critique and collective responsibility demanded by the Covid-19 pandemic?

The two issues of Knowledge Cultures on Pandemic Education (2020) bring together educators from across the globe to respond to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. They are available through Proquest Central or Gale Academic Onefile.
