Congress on the practice of commoning throughout history with the primary objective to present innovative research informed by critical interculturality.
Common Resources, Associationism and Networks of Reciprocity throughout History
The resistance to poverty and inequalities manifests in various social practices that can be understood under the broad concept of Commoning. These practices, which include the use of common resources, associationism, and informal networks of cooperation and reciprocity, demonstrate versatility and resilience as they adapt to different societies, cultures, and historical contexts. While they are recognized as counter-hegemonic models that promote alternative relationships between economy, society, and nature, further knowledge is required to understand the historical evolution of this collective action repertoire.
The primary objective of the international congress on the practice of commoning throughout history is to present innovative research informed by critical interculturality. The congress aims to foster dialogue between the global North and South, valuing both theoretical insights and practical experiences. By focusing on diverse cultural contexts, the congress seeks to bring together researchers and activists to explore commonalities and specificities of these social practices. Additionally, the congress intends to reflect on significant topics such as social class, gender, ethnicity, and assess the impacts of capitalism’s expansion, state and coloniality, diaspora, and the development agenda from a diachronic perspective.
Call for papers
We encourage the submission of case studies on commons, cooperatives, mutuals, associations, and informal cooperation and reciprocity schemes. Additionally, we welcome comparative and entangled analyses that shed light on the multifaceted history of commoning practices.
Proposals in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French are accepted. Selected papers from the congress will be considered for publication in an open-access, peer-reviewed electronic book.
