Call for Reviews: Volumen VI: “Knowledge Asymmetries in Latin America”
We cordially invite you to contribute a book review to the volume VI of CROLAR, Critical Reviews on Latin American Research. The volume will be entitled “Knowledge Asymmetries in Latin America” and will appear in October 2014.
This volume aims to review publications that contribute, both theoretically and empirically, to realize how the processes of production and circulation of knowledge and knowing –on a local and global level– produce, reproduce and legitimize asymmetries in Latin America, through its mechanisms, practices, beliefs and speeches, among others.
We are especially interested in contributions dealing with the Latin American reality as an example of the asymmetric nature of North-South relations and those contributions that treat the impact of these asymmetries on the lives of suppressed and marginalized populations.
In this regard, we are looking for contributions that reflect on the spatial, material, and temporal dimensions of the production and circulation of knowledge. In particular, we invite contributions dealing with three types of asymmetries:
1) Asymmetries in the politics of knowledge between the global North and South, between disciplines, between knowledge fields, etc.
2) Asymmetries of race, gender, ethnicity and class, produced and legitimized by knowledge, and
3) Asymmetries between different forms of knowledge, such as knowing, knowledge and experience and their role in the construction of “modernity”.
We are also calling for reviews of publications that go beyond the formal limits of academic knowledge production. These will be published in the Review’s section “Interventions”.These can include reviews of works by journalists, activists, practitioners, artists and others that address a broader public and discuss current issues. In this section, we especially welcome reviews of projects that choose a non-book format, such as documentaries, blogs, websites, or art projects.
The editorial team invites you to submit your review no later than April 1st, 2014.
Reviews may be submitted in Spanish, Portuguese, English, or German. If you are considering writing a review, please take note of our formal author guidelines and contact the volume’s editors:
Sabina García Peter, M.A. (sabinag[at]zedat.fu-berlin.de) and Marcela Suárez Estrada, M.A. (marce.srz[at]gmail.com)
We look forward to receiving your suggestions and proposals!
Sabina García Peter, Marcela Suárez Estrada and the CROLAR editorial team.
