Building a Stronger Collaborative Relationship Between Author and Editor 

Following its core mission of supporting underrecognized scholars, practitioners, and students, among other things, the Global South Caucus for International Studies (GSCIS) seeks to forge collaborative relationships between authors and editors, and to expand international authorship and intellectual diversity with new and established voices from all regions, but especially from those that remain underrepresented. GSCIS is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its first pre-convention Author Symposium in Montreal in a developing partnership with leading journals and publishing institutions in the field. The deadline to submit applications is October 31, 2022.
