Mapping South-South Connections

Mapping South-South Connections: Networks, Alliances and New Actors on the International Scene during the Decolonization Process and Cold War in Latin America, Asia and Africa (1810-1990)

Tehran/online, 21-22 November 2020

Deadline: 10 September 2020

This conference aims to explore historical, political and cultural connections between Latin America, Asia and Africa during the decolonization process and the Cold War from an interdisciplinary perspective. Traditionally, the history of the ‘international’ has been presented from the perspective of major Western European and North American powers, based on their specific experience of the events and according to their imperial expansion, geostrategic and economic interests, the challenges they faced and the strategies they developed to counter them, and more generally the political and cultural or ideological climate and circumstances prevalent in the Europe and North America.

Little attention has been paid to works developed taking into account or written from the perspective of the territories that were the object of the Western European and North American powers’ projection and interests. Networks, connections and alliance that were put into place by state and non-state actors coming from the so-called Global South that did not serve or follow those projections and interests were overlooked by historians. Although in the last two decades some works have appeared in the fields of Political Science and Economy, these are limited in number and moreover do not offer an adequate historical perspective.

In addition, fields such as Diplomacy, Visual Studies or the Art remain largely understudied if not unexplored. This is due to several reasons, among them the difficulty to access primary sources, instability or insecurity in different Global South countries, long distances among them and language diversity. The aim of the conference is to fill this gap by fostering the mapping of South-South connections between Latin America, Asia and Africa.

The conference will be held both online and on-site, thus allowing those who won’t be able to attend because of the Covid-19 situation to present their paper through video conference.
