ICI Berlin Press is an independent, non-profit publisher exploring the possibilities of a hybrid publishing model: OpenAccess electronic books with a print-on-demand option and the international distribution this model affords. Not bound by the protocols of conventional publishing nor the disciplinary boundaries of academic scholarship, it promotes radical lines of questioning, diverse voices, novel approaches.

Founded in 2019, the Press draws inspiration from but does not limit itself to the ongoing research projects of the ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry.

Cultural Inquiry

The series ‘Cultural Inquiry’ is dedicated to exploring how diverse cultures can be brought into fruitful rather than pernicious confrontation.

Worlding Public Cultures

The series ‘Worlding Public Cultures’ aims to investigate the global dimensions of contemporary culture through the concept of ‘worlding’, an understanding of the world generated through continuous processes of world-making.

Displacing Theory Through the Global South

Ed. by Iracema Dulley
Özgün Eylül İşcen

Displacing Theory Through the Global South calls for reflection on the historical and geopolitical inequalities that have shaped theorization. It asserts that what appears ‘universal’ often involves generalizations that flatten the particular. Critiquing the colonialist, imperialist, and Eurocentric perspectives that have historically impacted theorization in general and, more specifically, knowledge production about the so-called Global South, this volume seeks a different form of engagement that moves beyond such strictures. Featuring essays that unsettle distinctions between the general and the particular, it proposes a commitment to expanding notions of universality, making theorization not only relevant and generative, but ultimately, transformative.
