Journal of Comparative and International
Higher Education – Inhabiting the Otherwise in International Academia: Critiques, Complexities, Struggles, and Re-Existences
 As scholars geographically and epistemically located in the Global South, we, Guest Editors, invite academics and practitioners to contribute to the JCIHE Winter 2023 special issue, with a view to scrutinize, reflect, and problematize IHE from decolonial critiques, including:

  • Latin American Studies
  • African Studies
  • Indigenous Studies
  • Race Studies
  • Epistemologies of the South.

Submissions must focus on projects, politics, and practices enacted in academic spaces as a form of resistance and re-existence to modernity/coloniality, expanding the dialogues among Southern epistemologies that fight the effects of coloniality, produce critique, and reconceptualize international education otherwise.
