Celebrating 50 years of publishing a Radical Journal of Geography, 1969-2019
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 online version of Keywords in Radical Geography: Antipode at 50 is free to download here. Print copies can be purchased for just GB£7 / US$10 from our publisher, Wiley. The Editorial Collective would like to thank the good people at Wiley – especially Amanda Wilson, Angela Miguel and Jacqueline Scott – for all their work making this happen.
And thanks, too, to all our contributors; the brief was broad, and they responded to it with elan, producing innovative essays that push at the boundaries of radical geographical thinking. They critique and challenge settled orthodoxies, while engaging with the context of intellectual traditions and their particular trajectories, putting creative critical analyses to work to contribute to strengthening a diverse Left politics beyond 2019.
