A Radical Geography Community
As of August 2013, Antipode is edited by Nik Theodore (University of Illinois at Chicago), Sharad Chari (University of the Witwatersrand), Vinay Gidwani (University of Minnesota), Katherine McKittrick (Queen’s University – @demonicground) and Jenny Pickerill (University of Leicester – @JennyPickerill).
While Nik and Jenny settle in to their new roles, Sharad and Vinay are responsible for the Antipode Book Series; Vinay is handling Book Reviews, etc.; and Katherine is taking the lead on the interventions section (and you have an idea for a review or intervention, please get in touch Vinay [firstname.lastname@example.org], Katherine [email@example.com] or Andy in the editorial office [firstname.lastname@example.org]).
The Editorial Collective owe a debt of gratitude to the outgoing editors, Wendy Larner (University of Bristol), Paul Chatterton (University of Leeds), Nik Heynen (University of Georgia) and Rachel Pain (Durham University) who gave sterling service as editors from 2009 to 2013 (Rachel stepped down in 2012). We offer Wendy, Paul, Nik and Rachel our profound thanks for all their work as well as their ongoing support of the Antipode project (Wendy, Paul and Nik are continuing in their roles as Trustees of the Antipode Foundation).
Signing a new contract with Wiley, setting up the Antipode Foundation, and restlessly thinking through what Antipode could and should look like in the 21st century (see the editorials from 2011, 2012 and 2013) – not to mention the 1,000 submissions and re-submissions handled…they’ve worked through interesting times! And for all the difficulties, all the late nights, early mornings and desperate phone calls, a real sense of possibility has been created and sustained; while never losing sight of its past, Antipode looks to the future with confidence, ready to continue to experiment and innovate.
Antipode‘s future editors will be appointed by the Trustees of the Antipode Foundation. If you are interested in becoming more involved with Antipode please let us know by contacting Andrew Kent at email@example.com
