A Radical Geography Community

Call for proposals – Antipode special issues and symposia

website-banner_dec-16Antipode occasionally publishes special issues and symposia (see here and here, for some examples). The Editorial Collective seeks papers that both individually and collectively make a significant contribution to the advancement of radical/critical geography, whether by pushing debates forward in novel ways or by taking discussions in new directions. We look for papers that speak to ongoing conversations in the field, to be sure, but as representatives of an undisciplined discipline we also look for papers that stray beyond established borders (of all kinds) and that think creatively about the journal’s lines of descent and possible futures. And a “symposium”, of course, is a party, so we look for papers that are not only lively and well-presented but also engaging – papers that are in dialogue, meaningfully connecting with each other, and holding together as a collection to form something more than the sum of its parts. A strong introduction to a special issue or symposium takes on these provocations in bold and compelling ways.

The Editorial Collective meets twice a year, in June and November, to consider proposals. These should explain the collection as a whole and its “fit” with Antipode (in no more than 1,500 words), and should also include 150-word abstracts from authors. Symposia consist of around seven essays, each 9,500 words (inclusive of endnotes, references, tables and figures), and a guest-editor’s introduction.

Proposals should be e-mailed to Andy Kent (antipode@live.co.uk) before the end of May and October, and decisions will made before the end of June and November. If you have a question, please get in touch with Andy.
