From 2019 From the European South will be published twice a year: a monographic issue in the spring and a general issue in the fall.

We invite authors to send in articles for the year's general issue, and at the same time encourage prospective guest editors to submit thematic proposals for future monographic issues.

CURRENT | issue 6 | spring 2020

Issue 6 of From the European South welcomes unpublished and original contributions dedicated to the visual arts which, starting from the 1960s, have dealt with Italian colonial, decolonial, and postcolonial history. This has to be understood both as referring to the work of Italian artists interested in decolonial struggles and processes, colonial heritage, and postcolonial approaches and themes; and to international visual research in the form of fine arts, moving images, new media art, performances, etc., dedicated to the Italian post/colonial history and heritage.

We invite you to submit
- articles, reviews, interviews, creative interventions
- exploring visual artistic productions from the 1960s to the present, related to decolonial and postcolonial archival events, iconography, myths, problems, and themes
- reflecting on the history of contemporary art, museums, collections, exhibitions, art critics
- with a historiographical, transdisciplinary or visual culture approach

Please see the focus and scope section of FES before submitting your work.

Deadline for article submission: July 31st, 2019
Deadline for submitting accepted articles: November 15th, 2019
Deadline for reviews, interviews, and creative interventions: November 15th, 2019

CURRENT | issue 7 | general issue | autumn 2020

Issue 7
of From the European South  is open to contributions that speak to the core interests of the journal. It welcomes unpublished, original contributions that sparkle productive dialogues between the postcolonial and other critical perspectives (such as decolonial, global, environmental, gender studies and critical theory), as well as different disciplines and geo-cultural locations. The journal is committed to a focus on the uneven power relationships between the North and the South of the world (as ‘labels’ that are hardly tenable and need to be critically addressed) and at the crossroads of class, gender, religion, ethnic belonging, and race.

Please see the focus and scope section of FES before submitting your work.

Deadline for article submission: March 31st, 2020
Acceptance of submitted articles: June 15th, 2020
