Call for Papers, PERIPHERIE, Issue 161 (to be published in spring 2021):
Postcolonial Critique of Globalization

With this Issue, the editors seek to critically complement the state of political science research on the global protest movement and institutional reform processes, e.g. by focusing on colonial continuities and analysing them by means of postcolonial concepts such as “othering” and subaltern representation. They invite (self-)critical reflection on North-South asymmetries within the global protest movement.

Deadline for full articles 10 August 2020


Workshop on „Postcolonial Perspectives on Protest and Reform in the Global Political Economy“, 15-17.09.2020, Kassel, Germany

Organizers are taking the “complementary deficit” (Ziai 2012) of political science and postcolonial studies on one hand as a starting point to substantiate the possibilities and limits of postcolonial protest and reform research and on the other hand, to discuss its political relevance. For it is precisely against the background of the current movement for global climate justice -as illustrated by the “Decoalonize!” campaign for example- that postcolonial questions are being asked with renewed vehemence.
They are  looking forward to contributions in a variety of creative formats.
