Call for Book Chapter: “Global South perspectives, approaches and voices from the South”

We would like to invite you to submit a chapter for a book titled “Global South: perspectives, approaches and voices from the South”. The book is scheduled to be published by Editora da UFRGS.

The purpose of the publication is to systematize the reflections held during the Winter School on the Global South (from September 2 to 6, 2019, at UFRGS), which focused on addressing the theoretical and political meanings associated to the concept of “Global South” and to debate its analytical value.

The call for publication is primarily addressed to academics and researchers participating in the Winter School on the Global South UFRGS 2019, working in various areas of the humanities from different parts of the world. Exceptionally, considering the adherence of the chapter to the Winter School’s themes, submissions by non-participants will be accepted.
