Antipode Foundation International Workshop Awards, 2020.
The Antipode Foundation exists for the promotion and advancement of social scientific research, education and scholarship in the field of radical geography. Antipode Foundation International Workshop Awards are intended to support radical geographers holding events (including conferences, workshops, seminar series, summer schools and action research meetings) that further radical analyses of geographical issues and engender the development of a new and better society.The Antipode Foundation will explicitly privilege applicants and initiatives from historically under-represented groups, regions, countries and institutions.
The Foundation encourages applications that are collaborative in nature. We strive to fund work that leads to the exchange of ideas across disciplinary boundaries, countries and sectors; and to the building of relationships and productive partnerships. We encourage participation and engagement, cooperation and co-enquiry, whether with fellow scholars, research groups, university departments, NGOs, think tanks or social movements. The Foundation also encourages initiatives that are adventurous, that explore the boundaries of established academic practice. It seeks work that is innovative and original, but more than that, It want to fund work that is significant: and would like to support activities that have implications for praxis, to better understand contemporary political concerns and to develop alternatives.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Radical geography.
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
Events must take place within the year of award; in this case between 1st July 2020 and 30th June 2021.
- Anyone can apply for an Antipode Foundation International Workshop Award (including activists, academics and students), but the grant must be held and administered by a host institution (and it is also expected that university facilities will be used to support the event wherever possible).
- Events must take place within the year of award; in this case between 1st July 2020 and 30th June 2021.
- Those who have already received funding for a previous workshop are not eligible to apply for another.
- The Antipode Foundation expects to allocate each successful application up to £10,000 (or its equivalent in the awardee’s currency of choice) but the amount of the grant will vary according to the nature of the proposed event(s) and location. The distribution of funds will be as equitable as possible, with prospective additional resources being taken into consideration. The scheme is not intended to allow organisers to make a surplus from an event.
First Step: Submit a four-page application to Andy Kent ([email protected]) before/on 30 April 2020.
- Page one should contain the title of the event and its organisers’ details (names, position, department, institution/organisation, city, zip/postcode, country, phone number and e-mail address).
- Outline the event itself on pages two and three. Here you might cover: location(s) and date(s), participants and planned activities, and rationale; ambitions, that is, how the event will contribute to radical geographic scholarship and practice; and outcomes, dissemination and legacies, or, the expected “afterlives” of the event.
- Please be as concise and direct as possible, using no more than 1,500 words; we’d discourage references, endnotes and footnotes, encouraging “telegraphic” descriptions rather than literature reviews and the like.
- Page four should sketch-out the budget–how much money is needed, how you intend to spend it, and what co-funding has been secured.
