Its principal objective is to bring together researchers, social activists and artists from the world’s peripheries interested in sharing the diverse experiences of popular territories and constructing a convergent and global representation of the Potency of Peripheries.

The previous edition, Peripheries 5, which was published in August had the theme “public, environmental, and democratic health.” It included work from among others Rémy Ngamije, Natasha Omokhodion-Banda, Girma Fantaye, Merdi Mukore, Laurence Gnaro, Yara Monteiro, and Zukiswa Wanner. Check out the edition with all these writers in English. If you don’t speak English, the edition is also available in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English.

The publication is currently looking for contributions for Peripheries 6, set for publication in January 2021, that will address the themes of Race, Racism, Territory, and Institutions. It 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.
