Exchange and Collaboration with(in) the Global South is a training, mentoring and networking program designed for emerging scholars (junior faculty) of the Global South within the International Studies profession. Established Global South scholars (and Northern scholars of the Global South) will act as guides throughout a one-day workshop and hopefully beyond. The workshop will address issues such as publishing, proposal writing, networking and conducting research in challenging settings. The purpose of the workshop is to provide more comprehensive information about how to navigate academia, locally, regionally and globally, to create robust networks of emerging Global South scholars and to address current inequalities and asymmetries within the International Studies profession with respect to the Global South. The specific agenda and roster of senior scholars will differ from year to year and the workshop will rotate between the annual ISA convention site and distinct conferences within the Global South sponsored by various organizations (universities, think tanks, ISA and other professional associations).
Contact Jessica De Alba-Ulloa, the Chair of the Committee on the Status of Engagement with the Global South, with questions about this program.
