Third World Thematics (TWT) is an online journal publishing special issues in the fields of international relations and development studies, specifically showcasing research on the crucial issues facing the contemporary Global South. TWT presents a broad spectrum of scholarship on the postcolonial world, including the progress of the political economy and development of culture and society, as well as the challenges of inequality, displacement and diaspora, environmental and resource degradation, human and civil rights, war, hunger and disease.
Third World Thematics currently encourages the submission of proposals for special issues, especially on (but not limited to) the following research areas:
– Race, decolonisation and structural inequalities
– Pandemics, health and disease
– Gender, sexuality and intersectionality
– Digital technologies and cybersecurity
– Migration and mobility
– Urban living and infrastructure
– Climate change and green adaptation
– The Global South on the international stage
– Indigenous and Global South research methodologies
Special issues are expected to bring together diverse contributors and research locations, ideally offering a cross-continental perspective on their chosen topic. The individual articles and collection as a whole should advance current research and theory about the Global South.
Prospective guest editors should complete the journal’s proposal form and return it to Third World Thematics Managing Editor by email. Proposals will be reviewed by the editorial board and guest editors will be advised of the outcome as soon as possible.
Questions and proposals for special issues should be sent to [email protected]. Please do not hesitate to contact the journal with any pre-submission inquiries.
