  • Pandemic: One Small Step for Oblivion and a Big Leap into Managed

    • Authors: Alejandro Escobar-Vicent
      Pages: 3 - 13
      Abstract: The pandemic that we are still surviving represents a step forward in the process of the ethical disintegration of the State. It is  a process that has been going on for a long time, but has, over the last few decades, been increasing, to the point of making even more evident that we live under a regime that we call here one of managed democracy. The legal-political decisions taken during this pandemic have catalysed this process. On the part of the frightened and perplexed citizens, the recurrent oblivion acts, throughout history, as a contributory factor in this process of severe democratic involution.

  • Pandemic as Polemic: Free Will in an Age of Restrictions'

    • Authors: Jytte Holmqvist
      Pages: 14 - 24
      Abstract: Inserting the discourse within an existentialist framework, this paper examines our existence of interrupted realities through the lens of Kierkegaardian thoughts and also draws on Simone de Beauvoir’s “Qu’est-ce que l’existentialisme'” (1947). As we navigate a surrealist time of COVID-19 (ab)normal, the lingering pandemic has left an impact on a both societal and psychosocial level. With societies across the globe facing continuous restrictions, what happens to free will' De Beauvoir defines our raison d’être as the individual having reality “only through his engagement in the world”. In this period of limited individual freedom, can we still talk of free will and how shall we engage with this all-pervasive, rule-changing pandemic ‘New Normal’'

  • Engaging with the Great Pandemic War: Citizens, Artists, Academics

    • Authors: Stephen Alomes
      Pages: 25 - 41
      Abstract: Facing the Australian experience of the global Great Pandemic of the virus SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome CoV-2), known as the resultant disease, Covid-19, many citizens, including artists, writers and academics, engaged through analytical and creative works. Many of us have become 'citizen scientists', different from "Facebook Certified Experts”, denialists and anti-vaxxers who declare that they have "done my research" ... often on YouTube or Google sites. Seeing “Our Pandemic Zeitgeist”, a warlike experience, through the lens of my own engagements as a prose poet diarising our stories, a painter escaping the pandemic, one of several researchers advocating better health policies, and a trench warrior against Facebook pandemic fantasists, this account offers a distinctive perspective.

  • The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on teaching and learning Business

    • Authors: Andrea Ruiz Cirlot
      Pages: 42 - 57
      Abstract: This paper explores the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the effectiveness of face-to-face, online and the combination of both modalities in the teaching and learning of Business English, which is a discipline included in the English for Specific Purposes approach, known by its acronym ESP. In order to determine the differences between these two modalities, I created a questionnaire to gather information from fourth-year undergraduate students of Business Administration and Management from the University of Barcelona, and also from teachers who have taught Business English and other modes of English language teaching. This research analyzes the benefits and pitfalls of traditional and virtual classrooms, and emphasizes that the meeting of these two modalities affects not only student-teacher communication but also the performance of exams, tasks, oral presentations and practical exercises. The results of the questionnaire may elucidate whether the two modalities are compatible and to what extent merging them will enhance teachers’ performance and will strengthen learners’ knowledge of the target language.
