Building a Transnational Community of Practice: Writing and Researcher Development in Latin America and the Caribbean

The workshop(s) for this project will take place in the Latin America and the Caribbean: El Salvador, Jamaica, Peru and Colombia
Project status

This programme of in-person workshops aims to deliver training on publishing articles in leading international journals and other relevant career-building skills for early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences. It will focus on four countries of the Latin American and Caribbean region: El Salvador, Jamaica, Peru, and Colombia. Working together with local partner institutions, current and former journal editors will design and lead hands-on training as well as a one-to-one mentoring scheme. The workshops will encourage critical reflection on the political economy of publishing and make recommendations for how international journals aiming to include knowledge production from beyond Anglo-European regions may address structural barriers to publication. Overall, the programme will be a means to develop a transnational community of practice through long-lasting connections and collaborations with the partner institutions and participants in the workshops.
