PERIPHERIES JOURNAL – Instituto Maria e João Aleixo – Rio de Janeiro
Edition #3 of PERIPHERIES Journal will be dedicated to the Alternative Experiences of the Peripheries from the perspective of affirming the rights of the inhabitants of the peripheries.
The peripheries of the contemporary world have invented alternative process and forms in the fields of economy, housing, architecture, education, culture and the arts, sociability and the overcoming of various forms of violence and conflict. These are experiences built upon adverse everyday conditions, often placed in dispute with hegemonic structures that violate the rights of the people of the peripheries. We therefore seek to make these emancipatory practices more visible, spreading word far and wide. This is an essential strategy in strengthening the agendas and potencies of the periphery, and thus, of this journal.
Therefore, which new peripheral experiences represent transformative experiences for human emancipation, especially in today’s cities?
PERIPHERIES Journal takes the manifestation and appreciation of the Potency of the Peripheries as its guiding editorial line. Collaboration proposals submitted should consider and attend to this principle. For more information see the Letter from Maré and “The Paradigm of Potency and the Pedagogy of Coexistence.”
We wish to emphasize that the concept of the Periphery should be considered broadly, extrapolating the urban sphere and contemplating non-hegemonic peripheral realities. As such, we consider the Periphery to include populations and territories composed of the indigenous, quilombolas, religious/ethnic minorities and gypsy travelers, as well as questions of ethnicity and race, gender, LGBTQ+, refugees and migration.
