CALL FOR PAPERS: Latin America and Globalization

THE GLOBAL SOUTH 4.1 (Spring 2010)
Latin America and Globalization

The Global South is an interdisciplinary journal, published semiannually by Indiana University Press. The journal focuses on how world literatures and cultures respond to globalization. Its premise is that the various Souths—from the North American South to the European South, Latin and Central America, Africa, Asia, and Australia— share comparable experiences that differentiate them from mainstream and hegemonic cultures in their locations. Since many of these Souths share not necessarily a common wealth, but various issues of marginalization and inadequate access to means of production and amenities under globalization, TGS is concerned with the intersections among their experiences. The journal is interested in how authors, writers, and critics respond to issues of the environment; poverty; immigration; gender; race; hybridity; cultural formation and transformation; colonialism and postcolonialism; modernity and postmodernity; transatlantic encounters, homes, and diasporas; resistance and counter discourse; among others under the superordinate umbrella of globalization. The current Call for Papers is for a special issue on Latin America.

Latin America is a culturally rich and complex society due to a blend of cultures and ethnic identities, including European, African, and Native American. Resultantly, a discussion of Latin America in relation to Globalization must account for the rich diversity of Latin America in language, literature, history, religion, culture, economy, science, and technology. The Global South 4:1: Latin America and Globalization will feature responses to globalization by scholars in Latin American studies all over the world. The editor of this special issue, Adetayo Alabi of the University of Mississippi, invites high- quality original essays. As consistent with the journal’s interdisciplinary scope, submissions from scholars working in all areas of Latin American studies are invited.

This Special Issue of The Global South is scheduled for publication in March 2010. Please submit abstracts along with a short bio by November 10, 2009, final drafts of essays by December 31, 2009, and inquiries to Adetayo Alabi. Essays should be 25-35 double-spaced pages long and should follow the MLA style.
