Latin America Special Issue: Civil society in Latin America: Experiments, Resilience, New Utopias. Guest Editors: Humberto Muñoz Grandé & Patricia Maria E. Mendonça

Susan Appe


The Voluntas October 2023 issue (volume 34, issue 5) starts with a set of six articles about Latin America and the Caribbean. Guest edited by Patricia Mendonça (Sao Paulo University, Sao Paulo, Brazil) and Humberto Muñoz Grandé (Universidad Anáhuac México, Huixquilucan, México), the collection “Civil Society in Latin America: Experiments, Resilience, New Utopias” continues the journal’s commitment to geographic diversity and interest in the region. As Voluntas Co-Editor, this Special Issue is especially important to me given so much I have learned from our Latin American colleagues since I was a doctoral student studying civil society-state relations in the region.

As demonstrated by the journal’s now third Special Issue on Latin America and the Caribbean since its inception, the region has a tremendous tradition of scholarship. It has and will continue to bring knowledge, tools and methods that include “popular education, participatory research, theater of the oppressed, participatory video, feminist research, [and] indigenous-centered research” (Gutberlet et al., 2014, p. 179; see also Tessler, 2013). I am taking the opportunity to introduce the Special Issue, to highlight a commitment to the knowledge production out of, about and in partnership with Latin America and the Caribbean in Voluntas.
