n a 2002 issue of American Literary History entitled Contagion and Culture, the guest editors explained how they wrote “from within a society transformed by AIDS in both material and representational terms. Social, economic and behavioural changes are registered in and shaped by new forms of representations” (Wald, Tomes and Lynch 619). This issue of Études anglaises offers to examine some shifts in interpretative frameworks in the humanities within the turmoil of the COVID-19 outbreak: the pandemic itself is not necessarily the object of this volume, it is the starting point, the fresh and crisp perception and emerging or re-emerging ideas that we are working with.
