Keywords in Radical Geography: Antipode at 50

March 1, 2019 Comments off

Jazeel, T, A. Kent, K. McKittrick, N. Theodore, S. Chari, P. Chatterton, V. Gidwani, N. Heynen W. Larner, J. Peck, J. Pickerill, M. Werner, M. W. Wright (eds) (2019) Keywords in Radical Geography. Oxford: Wiley.

To celebrate Antipode’s 50th anniversary, we’ve brought together 50 short keyword essays by a range of scholars at varying career stages who all, in some way, have some kind of affinity with Antipode’s radical geographical project.

  • The entries in this volume are diverse, eclectic, and to an extent random, however they all speak to our discipline’s past, present and future in exciting and suggestive ways
  • Contributors have taken unusual or novel terms, concepts or sets of ideas important to their research, and their essays discuss them in relation to radical and critical geography’s histories, current condition and possible future directions
  • This fractal, playful and provocative intervention in the field stands as a fitting testimony to the role that Antipode has played in the generation of radical geographical engagement with the world

The Annals of the American Association of Geographers is seeking contributions for a Special Issue on “Social Justice and the City.”

We are seeking papers from a broad spectrum of scholars on social justice struggles in urban contexts. While we hope to be able to publish conceptual research drawing on now 40 years of cutting edge research in Geography on “social justice and the city,” we also hope to solicit papers on urgent contemporary issues, which will inform and motivate a broad audience of consumers and producers of geographic knowledge, from policy makers to grassroots activists.

Themes for the special issue could include, but are not limited to, original research in such areas as:

  • Racial/Gendered/Queer Justice and the City;
  • Environmental Justice, Social Justice, and the City;
  • Social Justice and Planetary Urbanization;
  • Social Justice and the Post/anti-colonial City;
  • Law, Social Justice and the City;
  • Segregation and inequality;
  • Mobility and immobility;
  • Urban Austerity and Social Justice;
  • Labor, Economic Justice and the City;
  • Social Justice and the Youth/Children’s City;
  • Marxism(s) and the City;
  • Social Justice and the Secular/non-Secular City;
  • Measuring Social Justice and the City;
  • Neoliberal Urbanism and Social Justice;
  • The Right to (Social Justice in) the City;
  • Urban Movements for Social Justice.

Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be submitted by email to Jennifer Cassidento ( jcassidento [at] aag [dot] org) by March 1, 2016. The Editor will consider all abstracts and then invite a selection to submit full papers for peer review by April 15. Papers will have a target maximum length of 5,000 words (including main text, abstract, references, tables, figure captions, etc.). First draft papers will be due (via Manuscript Central) by December 2016 and final papers will be due in October 2017 for publication in 2018.
