This course will focus on the practices and experiences of scholarly production and knowledge exchange in the “Global South.” The course will explore what Scholarly Communications means in different countries and regions. The emphasis will be on the local contexts and relevancies of participation and impact, including those related to publication, technology, access and reuse, dissemination and outreach, funding, credit and attribution, and evaluation.  

The course will support a critical examination of the epistemological, geopolitical, spatial, technological, and economic status of the Global South, as well as strategies for positively transforming Scholarly Communications on a global scale in ways that eliminate systematic and biased understandings of participation and success.

There will be five half-day sessions offering a mix of lecture and practical work, particularly information gathering and analysis. The emphasis will be on providing frameworks within which information can be gathered and understood rather than on “fact teaching.”

Proposed level: All levels.

Intended audience: The course will focus on the needs of students, researchers, librarians, publishers, and other research production and communication stakeholders working in the Global South. The course may also be of interest to those who want to build an understanding of Scholarly Communications in the Global South to meaningfully address (and cease contributing to) inequities, and to allow successful collaborations.
