“When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about, " says Haruki Murakami. Covid-19 has been more than a storm. It would be interesting to see how the world will change in the aftermath of Corona. Communication will make a complete volte-face. The global village will no more be a place to connect. To connect will no more be the mantra, and yet disconnect is a luxury the mortals would still not be able to afford.  Post Corona will be an age of dis-communication though.

Social distancing will set the paradigm for future. How will the Post Covid world communicate? How will they survive without communication? What modes of communication will die a natural death? What new modes of communication will emerge?  Is it possible for long, and for all to survive on virtual communication? Can  virtual communication  make the same impact as  physical communication? So many interesting points to explore.

We are planning a book on how communication will survive the age of dis-communication. Scholarly papers of 5000-6000 words each are invited.

-Crisis communication management
- Misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation
- Virtual communication vs. physical communication
- Equity and access to communication and information
- (Re)construction of human communication and interaction
