Another World is (Still) Possible
world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear
Dominant narratives in today’s global sociopolitical landscape reinforce a dichotomy between globalization and anti-globalization. This dichotomy ignores not only the connections between these two poles as they have emerged in the Global North but also the plethora of alternatives formulated by communities and movements at the margins. Alter-globalizations foreground myriad imaginaries from below, presenting a host of possibilities for another world.

Africology: The Journal of Pan African Studies (formerly The Journal of Pan African Studies; JPAS), a trans-disciplinary on-line, peer reviewed scholarly journal devoted to the intellectual synthesis of research, scholarship, and critical thought on the African experience around the world, is seeking contributions for a special edition that aims to explore the full scope of the African world. We are especially seeking to broaden our scope of diasporic African content. To this end, we are seeking submissions from all disciplinary fields of academic inquiry, including the arts, humanities and social sciences, interdisciplinary studies, STEM-related fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), as well as Africology (i.e., African Diaspora Studies, African Studies, Africana Studies, African American Studies, Afro-American Studies, Black Studies, Pan African Studies, etc.). The non-exhaustive relevant topics sought for this special edition include the main topic as well as the following subtopics.
Statement of the Network for the Critical Study of Global Capitalism on the US Blockage of Cuba
The Network for the Critical Study of Global Capitalism (NCSGC) held its Fourth Biannual Conference in Havana, Cuba on November 1-3 of 2017. The NCSGC wishes to thank our Cuban hosts and our co-sponsors from the Asociación de Historiadores Latinoamericanos y del Caribe (Association of Historians from Latin America and the Caribbean).
In these times of renewed US aggression towards the Cuban people and their government, the NCSGC wishes to express its friendship and solidarity with the people and the government of Cuba. We demand that the US government immediately lift its illegal economic, financial, and commercial blockage of Cuba. We add our voices to those of the 191 nations that on November 1 voted in the United Nations to condemn the blockage as a violation of international law.
