peripheries 6
Race, Racism, Territory, and Institutions

Peripheries 6, set for publication in January 2021, will address the themes of Race, Racism, Territory, and Institutions


 

Incorporating diverse knowledge forms, analytical and propositive studies, aesthetic, literary, and journalistic narratives, opinion pieces, photography, and art,

the upcoming edition will address the question of how structural racism reproduces inequalities in contemporary society, especially in the field of human rights violations and attacks on life itself.


Peripheries Journal contemplates the complexity of the theme and will gather work in dialogue with experiences from, above all, Black people in their territories of existence, as well as others.

It will also address the diverse conflicts experienced by native peoples, Romani, and migrant peoples, considering the importance of intersectionality in the debate on race/racism for reflections that elucidate gender, sexual orientation, religion, caste, age, and other lines of social identity.


 

This edition proposes to merge critiques of structural and institutional racism with stigmatizing narratives, historically constructed sociocentric imaginaries, the expropriation of ancestral territories, and eurocentric epistemologies, without losing sight of the strong hold racism finds in its institutional intermediary: the institutions of State, markets, religion, and/or civil society itself.

The edition will emphasize struggles and movements, strategies and antiracist developments, both incipient and ongoing, in global peripheries, without detaching race, territory, and institutions in their expressive reconstruction of paradigms that normalize contemporary power structures, considering the multiple forms in which racism produces and effects the affirmation of oppressed subjects in racialized power relations.

Today’s popular territories, as well as antiracist practices and methodologies, are references for the critical composition of this edition.

Peripheries 6 will mobilize a broad composition of contributors on the proposed theme within the magazine’s six editorial elements: interviews, articles — academic or opinion-based — narratives, testaments, photography, illustrations, ‘Born and Raised in the Periphery,’ and Peripheries Features, our open section dedicated to the participation of partner institutions and civil society.


 

editorial guide 

Peripheries 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 Romani peoples, as well as questions of ethnicity and race, gender, LGBTQ+, refugees, and migration.
