From the European South

a transdisciplinary journal of postcolonial humanities


focus and scope

From the European South: a transdisciplinary journal of postcolonial humanities is a refereed, open access e-journal that publishes articles, reviews, interviews, and creative interventions exploring the various facets – textual, figural, artistic, spatial, historical, social, political – of the postcolonial across the wide spectrum of the humanities.

It stems from the postcolonialitalia research project at the University of Padua, and intends to be a forum for the scientific research and conversations of scholars, intellectuals and artists who are based/located in the European South or involved in and contributing to debates of/from the Global South.

The title refers to a provocative theoretical location, rather than an identifiable geo-political region, connected to the notion of the ‘Global South’, which has become shorthand for the world of non-European postcolonial peoples, and to the ‘diffused’, percolating, entangled Souths of contemporary migrations.

The journal does not confine its attentions to any single place, region or discipline. It publishes original and challenging contributions from all over the world, and it aims to generate a productive dialogue and exchange between theorists and writers in disparate locations.

In order to remain critical of academically instituted forms of cultural knowledge production, the journal is committed to a rigorous analysis of the neocolonial and uneven power relationships between the North and the South at the crossroads of class, gender, religion, ethnic belonging, and race.
