A Radical Geography Community

Lecture Series

Since 2005, Antipode has run sponsored sessions at the annual meetings of the American Association of Geographers and Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers). We invite presenters who represent both the political commitment and intellectual integrity that characterise the sort of work that appears in the journal. Their lectures are filmed by our publisher, Wiley, and made freely available online; Wiley also arrange a reception. Speakers often submit essays to be peer-reviewed and, if successful, published in Antipode. Our archive of inspiring and provocative presentations can be viewed below.

The AAG’s and RGS-IBG’s annual international conferences are widely seen as vital venues for the exchange of cutting-edge ideas–but they’re not, of course, the only ones. From 2018, the Lecture Series will be going on the road, reaching out beyond the US and UK to maximise the diversity of those contributing to our community, and facilitating engagement with scholarship from hitherto under-represented groups, regions, countries and institutions to enrich conversations and debates in Antipode.

Join us at the joint conference of the New Zealand Geographical Society and the Institute of Australian Geographers from 11-14 July 2018 at the University of Auckland where Glen Coulthard (First Nations and Indigenous Studies, University of British Columbia) will be presenting “Global Red Power: Fanon and Mao on Turtle Island”:

My lecture will detail the historical emergence in the late 1960s of what Max Elbaum has identified as the “ideological hegemony” of a distinctly “Third World” socialist approach to the critique of settler-colonial capitalism on the left in North America, albeit in my case with a focus on the left in Canada, and an emphasis on the theoretical draw of Frantz Fanon and Mao Zedong to Red Power-era activists specifically. I argue that the inherited conceptual apparatus associated with the Third World contributions of Fanon and Mao provided Indigenous internationalists with a language of political contestation that they fundamentally adapted and transformed to critically engage their own local, colonial situations. In foregrounding this subaltern history of Red Power-era thought and activism, it will be shown that the individual and collective decolonization of Indigenous nations through acts of militant cultural and material self-actualization – resurgence – has always been a critically polymorphous project deeply informed but not straightjacketed by the grounded normativities of place, land and culture.
