Kairos: A Journal of Critical Symposium (Open Access) is the flagship publication of the Postcolonial Studies Association of the Global South (PSAGS). Drawing inspiration from its Greek origins, meaning ‘opportunity’ or ‘supreme movement’, Kairos aims to carve out a singular niche by turning attention to issue and problem based themes that concern both humanities and social sciences, but cannot be addressed within the conventional disciplinary frames.

Firsting is the process through which an act or accomplishment, a circumstance or phenomenon generated by man, is represented as having occurred for the first time. Firsting necessarily implies seconding and lasting as concomitant processes that help structure historical exchanges. Firsting involves complex issues that conflict our present, including those of race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, religion and language, and place of origin.
