Abstract

This special issue introduction explores the institutional, disciplinary, and geopolitical possibilities of “global south” as an emergent conceptual apparatus. More particularly, it explores how tensions between ordering and disordering implicit in “global south” might provide a useful heuristic for those engaged in a wide range of intellectual, aesthetic, and political work. By exploring “global south and world dis/order” we want to avoid the modern assumption that “change” is good in and of itself, even as we want to revisit long-standing assumptions about how the world has been ordered.
