updated: 
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 9:50am
The Global South journal
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

This special issue of The Global South asks how the rise and persistent relevance of radio has shaped and been shaped by the cultures of the Global South over the past century and more. What art forms, social practices, political movements, and linguistic effects emerged through the radio speakers of the Global South? How have creators and consumers harnessed this medium and its expressive possibilities? What roles has radio played in the broader cultural histories of the Global South? Here, the “Global South” is used as a flexible descriptor that names not only nations and lands of the southern hemisphere, but other regions radically affected by the pressures of imperialism, globalization, and unequal development.

Violence: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project

From ancient gladiators battling to the death in front of cheering crowds to the modern-day journalistic maxim that ‘if it bleeds, it leads’, violence has occupied a prominent place in the human imagination. It is common to see animals in the wild fighting to establish dominance and eliminate potential predators. But when humans engage in similar behaviour, it raises a host of questions about the nature and implications of violence. Why has our capacity for reason, compassion and empathy been insufficient to circumvent our primal urge to use physical force to cause injury, death or other forms of harm? Why has violence exerted an irresistible hold on the human psyche throughout history?

Torture: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project

Friday, February 22, 2019

As terrorism has seen a new rise in past decades, organizations such as ISIS, Boko Haram and similar others are thriving on the fear that is increasingly gripping the world. Their way of spreading horror and gaining the obedience of controlled populations is largely based on mass torture and killing. However, they are far from alone in this practice. Throughout history, torture has been used for a great variety of reasons, ranging from the twisted satisfaction of psychopathic criminals, to state and/or Church sanctioned means of punishing evil doers or extracting confessions; from violently resolving domestic disputes to means of protecting national security.

I am looking for one essay to fill an empty spot in an edited collection on the television show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. This essay should address the critical reception of the show. The final draft of the essay is needed by March 15, 2019.
