This is another pandemic issue of the Southern Journal for Contemporary History (SJCH). In the last issue, we carried an editorial essay on the forms that history-writing might take under the shadow of the global Covid-19 pandemic – new questions, new collaborations, new methodologies. In this issue, we have had to contend with the pandemic on another level. Varying regimes of lockdown, re-organising of academic calendars and online learning have imposed fresh demands on professional scholars from across the continent. These have impacted upon their ability to visit archives, undertake fieldwork, think, write, present seminars, edit and revise, some of the components of scholarly production. Accordingly, we are especially grateful to our authors, and also our reviewers, who have given of their time and consideration under trying circumstances.
