About this book

This book explores contemporary cultural, historical and geopolitical connections between Latin America and Australia from an interdisciplinary perspective. It seeks to capitalise on scholarly developments and further unsettle the multiple divides created by the North-South axis by focusing on processes of translocal connectivities that link Australia with Latin America. The authors conceptualise the South-South not as a defined geographic space with clear boundaries, but rather as a mobile terrain with multiple, evolving and overlapping translocal processes.

Reviews

“In this overdue collection, trans-Pacific connections take on new meaning and vibrancy. Divided by language, as well as by an ocean, the peoples of Australia and Latin America yet share postcolonial sensibilities and an ambiguous position in a global order dominated by the North. They share, too, destructive histories of imperial invasion and Indigenous dispossession. Mapping South-South Connections provides new perspectives on a complex relationship.” (Marilyn Lake, Professorial Fellow, School of Philosophy and History, The University of Melbourne, Australia)

Mapping South-South Connections represents a formidable challenge to the geographies of Latin American Studies, at a watershed moment for the global flows of merchandise, power and cultural capital. Peñaloza and Walsh’s collection is a timely contribution to our rethinking of Latin Americanism in its trans-Pacific reconfigurations.” (Jens Andermann, Professor, New York University, USA)

“This is an inspiring and timely volume on the under-researched field of Australian-Latin American connections. This interdisciplinary collection provides innovative and significant insights into knowledge production, cultural processes and historical linkages across the Southern Hemisphere. It offers an important reading for scholars and students interested in transpacific relationships, past and present.” (Eveline Dürr, Professor of Social and Cultural Anthropology, LMU Munich, Germany)

“A book to linger over! A rich collection of studies from present and past. The wealth of links between the two continents will surprise many readers. The authors face hard post-colonial realities, but also give us hopeful stories of cultural creation and social action. This book vividly shows the joy, and the trouble, in making South-South connections.” (Raewyn Connell, author of Southern Theory and Professor Emerita, University of Sydney, Australia)
