The MLA Committee on the Status of Graduate Students
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

COVID has drastically changed how individuals navigate their worlds. Many university campuses and graduate programs have made changes. Current graduate students finishing their PhD program and future incoming cohorts, for example, will face new difficulties. Will funding continue to be available? Will campuses remain open, specifically student housing? Will campuses improve the experiences of disabled and marginalized groups so that campus services are not only theoretically accessible to all graduate students but also equitably distributed? How has COVID impacted you and how do you navigate graduate school?

Polylogues at the intersection(s) of decolonisation, conviviality and ‘critical diversity’ literacy: (Re-)imagining a ‘good life’

Editors: Wits Centre for Diversity Studies  and Convivial Thinking Editorial Collective

The Oxfam Inequality Report is a yearly reminder of the pervasiveness and depth of embedded injustices and inequalities in our daily lives. Colonial trajectories continue to shape contemporary tendencies to universalise the constitutive elements of a ‘good life’, encapsulated in global goals such as the SDGs. The resultant erasure denies other social and political imaginaries, other ways of knowing and understanding the world; as the Zapatista say, ‘a world of many worlds’, wherein we collectively create pluriversal spaces to flourish.

In the inaugural issue of The Global South, Arif Dirlik notes the fundamental instability of the journal’s core concept: “like all geographical designations of ideological and political spaces and projects,” the geography of the Global South “is much more complicated than the term suggests, and subject to change over time.” “[T]he ‘South’ of the contemporary world,” Dirlik reminds us, “may be significantly different in its composition and territorial spread than the South” of past historical moments.
