In their new book, The Global South Atlantic, editors Kerry Bystrom and Joseph Slaughter look at the South Atlantic as a site of globalized world politics:

“The Global South Atlantic traces literary exchanges and interlaced networks of communication and investment—financial, political, socio-cultural, libidinal—across and around the southern ocean. Bringing together scholars working in a range of languages, from Spanish to Arabic, the book shows the range of ways people, governments, political movements, social imaginaries, cultural artefacts, goods, and markets cross the South Atlantic, or sometimes fail to cross.”

ComDev’s Oscar Hemer contributed a chapter on the Falkland Islands’/Malvinas’ conflict to the volume which continues ComDev’s collaboration with Bard College in Berlin where Kerry Bystrom is a professor and Associate Dean. She also hosted a workshop of the Conviviality research network recently that Oscar Hemer coordinates.
