Abstract

As part of our relaunch of Gateway Papers, we wanted to refocus and re-centre the humane values that underpin our work, and to highlight the impact of the pandemic upon our intellectual being and doing. We deliberately wanted to use stories of lived experiences, in order to show how Covid-19 has recalibrated academic experiences of their work, cultures and institutions. Crucially, we wanted to build a collective and communal understanding of the impacts of the pandemic, reflected and refracted in relation to emotion, ill-being and well-being, workload and working practices, cognition, cooperative working, lone working, the place of technology, and so on. We were also very interested in papers that develop our understanding of the differential, intersectional impacts of Covid-19. This editorial places the papers in this collection inside this context.
