The events of recent months have made us experience, as never before, fear and anxiety regarding the fate of humanity and, particularly, of each of our societies in the world. The magnitude of its impacts affects all orders of society, the economy, politics and culture. From the social sciences and humanities, we consider it imperative to carry out a confrontation exercise between our theories with reality, since one of the commitments of the social sciences is to explain the roots and elements that build the social order, but also the roots and elements behind crisis situations such as the one we are experiencing with the global pandemic that began in 2020. This exercise in theoretical confrontation with the overwhelming reality that has suddenly fallen upon us, is one of the objectives of this catalog of academic collaborations contributed by members of the Society and Territoriality research area of ??the Department of Social Relations of the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Xochimilco Unit. From various theoretical trenches and from a diversity of techniques and methods of approximation to global reality, this attempt at theoretical and practical reflection aims to develop a body of work that approaches an explanation and confrontation with reality, assuming the value of weighing our theoretical frameworks in the face of a reality that suddenly seems to be getting out of hand.
