Virtual July Global Southern Forum

"Beginning the Conversation"

July 17–21, 2023
Virtual (hosted by Nelson Mandela University, University of Connecticut, and The Pennsylvania State University)

The 2023 July Global Southern Forum is a virtual event titled, “Beginning the Conversation” and serves as a precursor to the in-person July Global Southern Forum to be held in July 2024 at Nelson Mandela University, in Gqeberha, South Africa. 

The virtual installment seeks to prompt some initial thoughts and prompts to be developed into fully fledged conversations, panel discussions and workshops to be taken up in 2024. The July Global Southern Forum is imagined as a ‘roaming’ Forum, and will travel across different geographical and geopolitical spaces every year with the aim of exploring intellectual priorities and scholarship across contexts.

Sessions include:


Salikoko Mufwene and Jane Gordon

John Joseph and Ana Deumert

Rozena Maart, Michael West, and Arthur Spears


Panel Discussions

Sinfree Makoni, Lewis Gordon, and Lynn Mario Menezes de Souza
