A Radical Geography Community
Registered in July 2011, it exists specifically for public benefit and the promotion and improvement of social scientific research, education and scholarship in the field of radical and critical geography. To this end it enables the pursuit and dissemination of valuable new knowledge that advances the field by:
[i] Producing Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography, a peer-reviewed academic journal published by Wiley, and its companion website, AntipodeFoundation.org;
[ii] Making grants to: support conferences, workshops and seminar series; and enable collaborations between academics and non-academic activists; and
[iii] Arranging and funding: summer schools and other meetings for doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, and recently-appointed faculty; public lectures at international geography conferences; and the translation of academic publications.
The Foundation currently has seven trustees – Sharad Chari (University of California Berkeley), Paul Chatterton (University of Leeds), Vinay Gidwani (University of Minnesota), Nik Heynen (University of Georgia), Wendy Larner (Victoria University of Wellington), Jamie Peck (University of British Columbia) and Melissa W. Wright (Pennsylvania State University) – and is managed by its secretary, Andrew Kent (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Andy has been managing Antipode’s editorial office since 2007 – he’s been responsible for the publication of 51 issues thus far… – and has been the Antipode Foundation’s secretary since its registration. He was at the University of Manchester from 2002 to 2010, working with Noel Castree.
Noel (now at the University of Wollongong) and Jane Wills (Queen Mary, University of London) resigned from the Foundation’s board of trustees at the end of April 2015. Noel and Jane have been stellar trustees, and part of the Foundation from the beginning; they will be missed. The remaining trustees fully understand their reasoning and thank them for all their hard work as well as their ongoing support of the Foundation.
Below you’ll find the trustees’ annual reports, which outline the Foundation’s structure, governance and management; its objectives and activities, and achievements and performance; financial reviews; and plans for the future.
