A Radical Geography Community
Antipode is edited by Wendy Larner, Paul Chatterton, Vinay Gidwani, Nik Heynen and – until very recently – Rachel Pain. Rachel brought wisdom, insight and patience to her role in the Editorial Collective (and also revitalised the Book Series through her imaginative commissioning work) and we are deeply regretful, although fully understanding, that she decided to step down from Antipode at the beginning of 2012. We offer Rachel our profound thanks for all her work as well as her ongoing support of the Antipode project.
Katherine (Gender Studies, Queen’s University, Canada) researches in the areas of Black Studies, Critical Race Theory, Cultural Geographies, and Migratory Histories. Her work focuses on the links between black creative texts (music, poetry, fiction, film, and visual art) and social justice, with specific emphasis on the ways in which black communities have envisioned geography and produced their surroundings within the contexts of racial violence. Other interests and projects include researching black intellectual histories and scientific technologies of racial emancipation.
Sharad (Centre for Indian Studies in Africa and Department of Anthropology, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa) works at the interface of human geography and historical anthropology, with interests in changing forms of social justice struggle and the possibility of a broadly intelligible ‘narrative geography’. He has written on agrarian transition in one of India’s main industrial districts as a product of shifting hegemonies and gendered class struggles, and is now writing on how people living next to oil refineries in Durban, South Africa, engage with various remains of a dialectical history of progress and segregation.
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
