Anne Garland Mahler is an associate professor of Spanish at the University of Virginia. She is an interdisciplinary scholar focused on South-South political and cultural movements, particularly among Latin American, African American, and U.S. Latinx writers. She has done significant work to support the growth of the interdisciplinary field of Global South studies. Her research draws on the fields of cultural studies, history, and critical theory of racial capitalism and globalization. Her work has been supported by the American Council of Learned Societies, the Ford Foundation, and the Mellon Foundation.
Her most recent work includes From the Tricontinental to the Global South: Race, Radicalism, and Transnational Solidarity (Duke, 2018), and she currently has three books in progress: The Comintern and the Global South: Global Designs/Local Encounters (as co-editor, forthcoming from Routledge), The Oxford Handbook of the History of the Global South (under contract), and a monograph South-South Solidarities: Racial Capitalism and Political Community from the Americas to the Globe.
