Suggestion for incorporating this project into a graduate course:
We welcome and encourage you to incorporate this project into your graduate courses. For instance, Mahler and Armillas-Tiseyra assigned critical entries in their respective graduate seminars. Students identified, researched, and wrote entries on key concepts/thinkers/moments/issues as mid-term projects with the potential possibility for publication in Global South Studies. This exercise was intended to help students consider how to frame their own research within the field of Global South Studies through articulating and understanding concepts that are foundational to it but that are also integrally relevant to other fields. Ideally, these critical definitions could easily be integrated into the literature reviews of students’ dissertations and other publications.

Please note that not all submitted entries will be accepted for publication and those accepted will likely be asked to revise their submissions. 

Peer Review Policy:
Submitted articles undergo editorial screening and rigorous peer review. A limited number of select and solicited articles are reviewed by the editors alone for scholarly accuracy.
