A Radical Geography Community
We’ve published some great open access book reviews and review symposia on AntipodeFoundation.org in the last few months, including:
Yui Hashimoto and Anne Bonds (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) on Rachel Slocum and Arun Saldanha’s Geographies of Race and Food: Fields, Bodies, Markets;
Stephen Young (University of Wisconsin-Madison), David Beer (University of York), Jamey Essex (University of Windsor) and Farhang Rouhani (University of Mary Washington) on Matthew Sparke’s Introducing Globalization: Ties, Tensions, and Uneven Integration (with a response from the author);
Johnnie Crossan (University of Glasgow), Simon Springer (University of Victoria) and Stephen Healy (Worcester State University) on James C. Scott‘s Two Cheers for Anarchism: Six Easy Pieces on Autonomy, Dignity, and Meaningful Work and Play (with a response from the author);
Laura Wolf-Powers (University of Pennsylvania) on Scott Larson’s “Building Like Moses With Jacobs in Mind”: Contemporary Planning in New York City;
Norma Rantisi (Concordia University) on Maureen Molloy and Wendy Larner’s Fashioning Globalisation: New Zealand Design, Working Women, and the Cultural Economy;
Joaquín Villanueva (Gustavus Adolphus College) on Alice Goffman’s On the Run: Fugitive Life in an American City;
Simon Ferdinand (University of Amsterdam) on Harriet Hawkins’ For Creative Geographies: Geography, Visual Arts and the Making of Worlds; and
All Antipode book reviews in our online repository, Wiley Online Library, are now freely available. While this digital archive will remain in place, from January 2013 we’ve no longer published book reviews in the journal; all book reviews have migrated to AntipodeFoundation.org. This has allowed us to feature not only more reviews, but also more substantive reviews (in the style, say, of the London Review of Books or the Boston Review), more quickly.
The makeover, we hope, is transforming the book reviews section into a more capacious ‘Book reviews, etc.’ section, that may now feature, in addition to book reviews, reviews of film and music, grey literature, and political pamphlets – in fact, any texts that have something to say to the radical geographic imagination. We also welcome reviews of non-English-language texts – reviews that break down some of the barriers between language communities, enabling hitherto under-represented groups, regions, countries and institutions to enrich conversations and debates in Antipode.
