Critical South, a book series of the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs published by Polity Press, galvanizes cross-hemispheric discussion with new and established works of critical theory from the Global South.
International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP), jointly housed at the University of California, Berkeley and Northwestern University, is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The task of this international consortium is to document, connect, and support the various programs and projects that now represent critical theory across the globe. Through its work, the Consortium aims to document the global contours of critical theory today, supporting critical thought both inside and outside the university in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and science and technology studies, and seeking collaborative forms for critically responding to pressing global challenges.
The Consortium directory connects programs, centers, and projects in the field of critical theory throughout the world, faciliating intellectual exchange, and illuminating the global form and reach of critical theory today.
Critical Times is a peer-reviewed, open access online journal published by the ICCTP with the aim of foregrounding contemporary critical theory operating within a global frame.

Critical South, a book series of the ICCTP published by Polity Press, aims to galvanize cross-hemispheric discussion, translating and publishing both new and established works of critical theory from the Global South.
The ICCTP’s biannual conference cycle focuses on contemporary global issues of concern for new forms of critical theory, bringing together affiliates in various parts of the world for academic exchange.
