Upcoming opportunities to collaborate with fellow Convivial Thinkers


Between the Universal and the Pluriversal in Times of Globalization

With this call we want to invite contributions reflecting on the construction of worlds in general, and in the plural more specifically, as well as its consequences in the lived praxis and the different academic fields in which they are already discussed. This is an interdisciplinary endeavor in which Latin America, as the region that has generated many debates about and between diverse worlds, deserves a central place. Contributions from all academic fields are welcome as they find points of connection with our proposition of tension between a powerful global world and many worlds still on the margins.

Deadline for submissions: 1 August 2021

Routledge Book Series – Post-COVID World: Academics, Politics and Society

 Series Editors: Lewis Gordon, Rozena Maart, Epifania Amoo-Adare and Sayan Dey

The biomedical crisis of COVID-19 has opened up a floodgate for other kinds of crisis like communal violence, racial discrimination, geographical hierarchies, socio-political hegemonies, academic exclusivities, etc. These crises are catalyzing massive geo-political shifts of the various epistemological and ontological frameworks of knowledge production across the globe. The shifts are bound to influence patterns of thinking and doing in a Post-COVID era. This book series will focus on various forms of academic, social and political transformations that are expected to take place in a Post-COVID World, with respect to the various crises. The advent of COVID-19, has resulted in major shifts affecting pedagogical frameworks, curricular structures, institutional infrastructures, evaluation patterns, international policies, political ethics, communal relations, gender existence, racial connotations, mental health and physical wellbeing. These are transformations that will continue to take place in a Post-COVID era. Keeping these shifting scenarios at the forefront, this book series will critically analyze various forms of transformation that take place in academic, social and political systems across the globe in a Post-COVID era.
