Interdisciplinary Centre for Global South Studies

About us

The Tübingen Interdisciplinary Centre for Global South Studies is a platform for an ongoing dialogue within a network of researchers, scholars and postgraduate students from Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Europe who are engaged upon the exploration of the intellectual challenges of the Global South. The Interdisciplinary Centre supports a networking intellectual enquiry and exploratory political project that seeks to create new concepts and expanding scholarly rhizomes across the South.

The Interdisciplinary Centre hosts an MA and a structured PhD programme in Global South Studies, as well as facilitating the activities of a network of partner universities in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific region (originally brought together by a BMBF-DAAD Thematic Network Project).
