The Dictionary of Coronavirus Culture presents an A-Z of life in lockdown.
Taking everyday terms that capture the lived experience of lockdown — like chocolate, streaming, ageing, health, clapping, social distancing, dystopia, and frontline workers — and discussing them with a range of writers, theorists, and academics, it provides unusually accessible and friendly analysis of our shared historic moment.
With contributions from Lynne Segal, Jo Grady, Kate Soper, Stefano Harney, and many more, The Dictionary of Coronavirus Culture is designed to help us come to terms with what COVID-19 and the associated lockdowns mean for us, and the world around us.
