The conference organisers invite paper proposals for a transdisciplinary conference marking the 50th anniversary of the 1966 Tricontinental Conference.
The conference aims to reflect on the Tricontinental’s enduring political, legal and economic importance, while also bringing together academics and activists to reflect on broader issues of imperialism and anti-imperial resistance.
We welcome papers on both the Tricontinental itself and related topics.

The history and significance of the Tricontinental
Theoretical and historical legacies of the Tricontinental and ‘tricontinentalism’: Third World Marxisms,
Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL), postcolonialism, global subalternity
