We are delighted to announce the launch of Global Souths Hub, a news and resource site developed alongside the leading academic journals Third World Quarterly (TWQ) and Central Asian Survey (CAS)

Global Souths Hub aims to share and connect the voices of scholar-activists, academics, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and anyone interested in the challenges and opportunities within the field of Global South studies. Global South studies is a rapidly evolving, interdisciplinary research area, and we hope that the Hub will encourage collaborations, facilitate reflection and inspire action.

Why Global Souths?

The additional ‘s’ reflects the diversity of the region, and highlights that there is not just one ‘Global South’ identity, culture and history, but many.

“The Global Souths hub is an important and vital forum for sharing critical knowledges about postcolonial challenges and decolonial pathways.”

The Hub

Global Souths Hub’s free to access news and blog site will include useful information for early career researchers, articles from experts in the field, PhD dissertation summaries, conference write-ups, video content, updates and opportunities from both journals, and more.

Interested in writing for us? Find out how to contribute to the Hub.

In the coming months, we will also be launching a Global South Speaks podcast, where we will be talking to leading thinkers in the field.

“I hope that Global Souths Hub will help us shake up existing hierarchies, make contributing to the field more accessible, and change the way we talk and research in the regions.”

Community Resources

In the Community Resources section of our website we feature funds, prizes and events. These include the Global South Colloquium Fund, The Irene Hilgers Memorial Prize, the Edward Said Award, the Anthony Hyman Memorial Lecture and the upcoming Kassahun Checole Prize.

The page also includes useful links to other journals, media, book series and prizes in the Global South studies field for you to explore. 

“Over time, we hope the Hub will connect scholars and practitioners across the globe.”
