Social Transformations: Journal of the Global South

 
 
Social Transformations is an outlet for critical but engaged knowledge about social justice, collective well being, and sustainable development within and across the Global South, a region we take to refer to societies in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific that are economically, politically, and culturally marginalized. Such studies trace interrelations and solidarities between and among peoples, states, and movements, while acknowledging tensions and contradictions within the South, as well as the legacies, manifestations, and trajectories of the North’s dominance. We support work that analyzes and enables positive change emerging from social movements, development paradigms, policies, and community and grassroots-based interventions. We publish interdisciplinary empirical and conceptual contributions from the different social and human sciences. We also encourage writing that is accessible to specialists and nonspecialists, avoiding both excessive theoretical abstraction and unreflexive empiricism.  The Journal is published twice a year.
