State and social movements: crisis and resistance in Latin America five years later
The tenth issue of Iberoamérica Social will be published around the 5th anniversary of the magazine and the project. At the end of 2013 we released our first issue (State and social movements in Latin America: from the European crisis to the Latin American boom) in which through a compared perspective, the geopolitical, cultural and economic situation of the Latin American region were analysed using different points of view.
In this issue, called State and social movements: crisis and resistance in Latin America five years later, we want to take advantage of the proximity of our anniversary to raise a similar thought. We want to discuss and make public the changes experienced in the region during the last five years.
From a multidisciplinary approach, it would be interesting to tackle subjects such as the retreat of left wing forces in Latin America and their rise in the Iberian countries, the empowerment of right wing forces and the orientation through conservative ideas and reactionary movements. We would also like to suggest a discussion about the Latin American economic crisis, the relationship with the Trump-ruled USA, the European fragmentation regarding the colonial eurocentrism and the reaffirmation of the Latin American school of thought. The topics approached in the first issue could become the foundation of the new one since they offer a great array of possibilities.
Iberoamérica social: Social Studies online-magazine was founded with the aim to improve the intellectual cooperation and to share academic knowledge among Latin American countries, taking advantage of the technologies offered by digital platforms. It is a biannual scientific and multidisciplinary issue in search of a human, respectful and responsible social science beyond the limits of social studies. Current affairs involving, affecting or interesting the Latin American society, such as democracy, human rights, gender, environment and the sustainable and inclusive development of our peoples will have priority. Thus, there is place for articles written about a freely chosen topic as well as for those included in the main dossier.
Works can be sent until April 19th, 2018 through the Open Journal System platform of Iberoamerica Social. They will be classified as follows:
Academic articles: From six to ten original articles of research, reflection or reviews for the dossier, and a section with up to six articles about a free topic. The maximum length is 10,000 words. The arbitration system of the magazine for this material is of double-blind peer review.
Miscellany: From six to eight articles at the miscellaneous section for bibliography reviews, research experiences, readers opinions, illustrations, pictures and other artistic expressions related to the main topic of the issue. Its publication will be abided by the expert’s opinion in each area.
Spanish, Portuguese and English texts will be considered in this call.
Iberoamérica Social promotes the reflection and the intellectual and inclusive production. Therefore, we encourage young researchers to participate.
