Internationale Tagung "The Global South on the Move"

7. bis 9. Juni 2017, Universität zu Köln

Though long considered distant and ‘other’, the so-called ‘Global South’ now seems to be closer to the ‘North’ than ever. Redirected capital flows, labour migration, refugees, new forms of knowledge and theory-building seeking to leave old Eurocentric perspectives behind – all these developments suggest a profound global re-mapping of territorial, political, socio-economic, cultural, and epistemic relations. This conference seeks to investigate the major transformations occurring within and as a consequence of actors of the Global South, and aims to stimulate cross-area and interdisciplinary research. We will focus on ongoing transformations in three key areas: capitalism, knowledge, and ecologies.
