Geography and Early Career Latin American Scholars: Sustaining mentorship, deepening partnerships and fostering change

The workshop(s) for this project will take place in Latin America - writing workshop take place in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.
Project status

The funding will consolidate and sustain initiatives developed in the first workshop (2022), which brought together fifteen early career researchers (ECRs) from across Latin America and 5 international mentors, and deepen the partnership between editors of Latin American and Anglophone journals to foster lasting change in the publishing landscape. A writing workshop in Buenos Aires (December 2023) will reunite ECRs and mentors to sustain objectives in international publishing and career development. It will provide ECRs with resources and skills to run their own workshops, encouraging the scheme’s roll-out and longer-term sustainability. A partnership workshop in Rio de Janeiro (June 2024) will consolidate achievements to-date and set long-term goals for working groups involving organizers, mentors and ECRs: (a) producing a multilingual ECR guide on publishing, grants and workshops (b) promoting cooperation between Latin American and UK journal editors on specific initiatives aimed at breaking down linguistic and epistemic barriers to publishing.

Workshop Team: Dr Sam Halvorsen, Queen Mary University of London; Dr Mariana Arzeno, University of Buenos Aires; Dr Mónica Farías, University of Buenos Aires; Dr Lucas Palladino, Universidad Nacional de Córdoba; Mrs Juliana Nunes Rodrigues, Universidade Federal Fluminense.
