Critical Theory in the Global South

The Critical Theory in the Global South project, an initiative of the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs, has as its mission the development of new critical theory curricula integrating intellectual traditions from the Global South. It pursues this mission through faculty collaborations, graduate student exchanges, book and article translations, workshops, and conferences.

Critical Theory in the Global South comprises ten subprojects, or "Inter-University Teaching Cooperations," that bring together critical theory scholars in North America, South Africa, and Latin America. Seven of these sub-projects are based at Northwestern; three, designated as "Linked Inter-University Teaching Cooperations," are based at Yale, Rutgers, and Fordham. Below you will find links to detailed pages for each project, featuring in-depth descriptions of their themes, methods, and projected outcomes, bios of their participating scholars, project syllabi and resource lists, and news and events.

The most recent summary of the CTGS project's goals, activities, outcomes can be found in the CTGS Project Status Update.
