Tracing multiple geographies of the Global South, this essay makes the case that it is a concept-metaphor that reterritorializes global space in the interests of repossession by the dispossessed. As such the global South is everywhere, but always also somewhere: accountable, embodied, and highly heterogeneous. It interrupts the flat earth, borderless world, and smooth space conceits of globalists, highlighting asymmetry and inequality amidst intensifying global interdependency. At the same time, it displaces the divide and dispossess discourses of both liberals and neoliberals alike, articulating earlier critical geographies of a non-aligned Third World with new struggles against dispossession on a global scale.
