Reimagining Our Worlds from Below: Transnational Conversations on Resistance, Movements and Transformations
A Free Virtual SSSP Global Connections Outreach Conference
February 22 to 24, 2022
The Covid-19 pandemic has made more evident persistent, systemic inequalities that are rooted in and shaped by ideological, economic, political, social, and cultural structures. However, there are other transnational concerns that exacerbate these inequalities, including dwindling natural resources, expanding conflicts, increasing authoritarianism, and widening wealth gaps. Amid all these, a deeper awareness of the damage of colonial and imperialistic histories has been emerging, making obvious that Western/Euro/American-centric solutions are no longer viable, and are, in fact, sources of social problems.
In response to the challenges these old and new realities, the Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP) is hosting a free virtual international conference. It aims to provide a platform for scholars, activists, practitioners, students, professionals, governmental entities, non-profit organizations, and civil society from all over the world to network, share experiences and learn from each other across boundaries – as we reimagine forms of resistance, movements, and solutions to the unconscionable historic and existential challenges we face on our planet.
We heartily invite you to join the conversation. Participation from the Global South and the South within the North is especially encouraged. More information and the call for papers will be available soon on our conference website.
Organized by the SSSP Transnational Initiatives Committee & Ad hoc Transnational Virtual Initiatives Committee.
Co-hosted by the Environmental and Climate Justice Hub in the Orfalea Center for Global & International Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Point persons: Diana Therese M. Veloso & Pattie Thomas
