Governing Intimacies in the Global South

About the series

Governing Intimacies in the Global South deploys the categories of intimacy and governance to offer novel insights into the subjects, politics and cultures of the global south. The series showcases work that speaks to the affective and intimate worlds of subjects located in Asia, Africa and Latin America while remaining attuned to governmental, social and other regulatory frames that undergird these worlds.

It seeks to bridge the gap between developmental analyses of the ‚Äėrest of the world‚Äô, which theorise¬†macro structures to the exclusion of the intimate, and the historical and ethnographic¬†records of micro-settings, to allow these to speak to¬†larger structural conditions and constraints. Emphasising the postcolonial making of gender, sexuality and race as categories of meaning and power, this series views the relation between intimacy and governance from a position of theorising¬†from the south, contributing to a reimagining of the idea of global south itself.
