Proceedings of the First International Conference on Social Science, Humanity, and Public Health (ICOSHIP 2020)

The impacts of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on human life are huge and systemic. While we are collectively trying to handle the increasing spread of virus infection, the unprecedented changes seem to be inevitable. The ways we think, communicate, behave, learn, work, socialize with others, and do daily activities have been reshaped in different ways from those in previous times. A logical consequence is the overwhelming changes in many fields including health, education, economy, business, social, culture, tourism, arts, and others. The challenge is big indeed and complex because it is global, multilevel, multidimensional, and multidisciplinary. What will happen in the near or long future will depend on what we are doing at present. Therefore, scholarly contributions across disciplines are encouraged to inform solid consensus on how we shall act within the pandemic and sustain a visionary endeavour towards the future global well-being.

The First ICoSHIP is initiated and hosted by Politeknik Negeri Jember, vocational higher education in Indonesia, as a response to the need of encouraging the most current and relevant studies or researches in Social Science, Humanities, and Public Health. Right now, the most current issues which influence people's life are those related to coping with this pandemic. Therefore, the conference offers international educators, academics, researchers, policymakers, and leaders with the challenging global perspective on "Transformation of human behaviour during the COVID-19 outbreaks: Challenges for future global well-being”. The conference offers insightful and visionary keynote speaking delivered by experts from Indonesia, UK, and Malaysia. This proceeding then collects multidisciplinary papers written by authors from different countries such as Indonesia, Senegal, Philippines, Japan, and the UK that have been presented at the conference.
