From 2019 From the European South is 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 9 | general issue | autumn 2021


Issue 9
 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 It welcomes unpublished, original contributions that sparkle productive dialogues between the postcolonial and other critical perspectives (such as decolonial, global, environmental,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, 2021
Acceptance of submitted articles: June 15th, 2021

CURRENT | issue 10 | Aftermaths. Vulnerable Times, Vanishing Places, Toxic Erasures

 
In this issue of FES 10 we intend to sound the depths of our post-virus world. The virus has only worked viciously to amplify existing unequal relations of power, biopolitical exposedness and vulnerability, in particular for people of colour, women, refugees, prisoners and other marginalised voices. Regimes of toxic erasure and selective memories have not only worked to efface these preexisting fault lines, but they have often inverted the narratives so that the victims become the perpetrators. Those contesting the ecocide of global warming, for example, are scripted as “ecoterrorists.” These regimes, in other words, are working to consolidate the very violent relations of power that are being contested by those at the receiving end of institutionalised state violence. This is perhaps nowhere more graphically manifest than in the now-global Black Lives Matter movement and the white racial panics (as exemplified by the US Capitol riot) of those that are desperately attempting to hold onto their racialised power, privilege and entitlements – all garnered thanks to histories of imperialism, colonialism and racial capitalism; these are histories that bind the EU and the UK with the settler colonial states that they birthed: the US, Australia, Canada and so on. The ‘new normal’ we are already facing is underscoring the evermore compelling need for change: The future is now, if it is to be at all. We say this as the unfolding global crises risk eliminating any sense of future at all if the status quo continues to remain in place.
