The Cultural Studies Department was one of the key organizers of the first and second South-South Forum on Sustainability held in 2011 (in Lingnan University) and 2012 (in Southwest University). The third Forum was held in Lingnan University on July 23-28, 2016. About 30 scholars from Latin America, Europe and Asia as well as from the Greater China region spoke and debated issues on Latin America, Asia, regional integration, financial capital crisis, trajectory of developing countries, agrarian question, architecture/urbanism, and visions for the future.
