Essays in this series discuss the plausibility of turning the crisis created by the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic into opportunities while reorganizing academic research. The papers in this series will identify the problems and potential solutions to the current  academic uncertainties and think aloud about ways of reimagining knowledge production practices. What difficulties do researchers face during primary data collection? Has COVID 19 transformed data collection practices? How would fieldwork practices change in the post-covid era? How do the Pandemic reconfigure ‘archives’, ‘fields’ and research laboraories? What are the challenges in accessing and the transformations undergone by libraries, museums and archives? What is the future of research collaborations and networks? What  are the challenges before researchers in communicating their research (seminars and conferences, journal publication etc.)? How does ‘working from home’ shape research and writing practices? Is the  nature and expectations of research funding and infrastructural support from external agencies and parent institutions changing? In which direction does this orient research concerns and practices in natural and social sciences, and Humanities  epistemologically, ethically and politically? The series presents  different aspects of the theme from a wide array of personal, disciplinary, institutional and regional perspectives.
