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.

Annual Global Crises & Global Change Undergraduate Conference
In recent years the extent and impact of multiple crises across various fields has increased significantly, affecting a growing number of people as well as the physical world we depend on. Experiencing or witnessing these crises on different levels, global and local communities are desperately seeking to find effective coping mechanisms, devise long-term solutions and develop viable alternatives. However, it appears that current approaches to these various and complex crises are often limited to a strictly defined academic discipline and have not provided sufficient answers and strategies to tackle the expansion of human suffering, destruction of nature, and systemic injustices. Thus, instead of looking at contemporary crises separately or from a single disciplinary perspective, there must be a shift towards interdisciplinary analysis that unveils the common roots of multiple, converging, intersecting and co-evolving crises, among which we find the following.
Deadline: February 2018
The Journal of Pan African Studies
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 two special editions that aim to explore the full scope of the African world.
African Global Experiences

The non-exhaustive relevant topics sought for this special edition include the main topic as well as the following subtopics.
Afro-Intellectualism: Past, Present, and Future Dimensions
We are seeking submissions focused on: the African intelligentsia, the African brain drain, decolonizing education in Africa and the African world community, institutional development and support for the African intelligentsia, the internationalization of African intellectualism, organic scholars within the African intelligentsia, the sociology of African intellectualism, the scholar-activist tradition/practice within the African intelligentsia, critical biographical profiles of the African intelligentsia, book reviews, the motion and behavior through space and time of African intellectualism in relationship to energy and force (the physics of African intellectualism), interviews, art and the African intelligentsia, Afro-futurism, the African intelligentsia absent of egocentricity, the conscious and unconscious dynamics/psychology of African intellectualism, etc. All relevant topics and subtopics will be considered for this edition.
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.
