The Antipode Book Series publishes books which engage and strengthen radical geographical ideas and Left politics broadly defined by combining critical theoretical interventions and empirical rigour. While we are open to different forms of substantive, innovative and imaginative scholarship, we are particularly keen to publish monographs, which develop their argument in sustained and situated ways. While the series is rooted in geography and transnational in scope, it is neither limited to disciplinary scholarship nor does it privilege particular geographical contexts. Rather, we are interested in a broad spectrum of politically-engaged scholarship that is in conversation with critical debates across fields, and that might speak to issues posed by contemporary political conjunctures. We particularly welcome submissions from authors from the global South and from backgrounds traditionally under-represented in the academy.
We aim to publish books that:
- Advance core theoretical ideas and arguments in ways that are attentive to intellectual traditions and their particular trajectories;
- Engage with and do justice to those voices too often invisibilised, unacknowledged, or under-represented in the key debates to which authors seek to contribute;
- Are accessible and written in lively prose that will appeal to diverse audiences;
- Speak to and take forward Left politics and engagement in situated ways;
- Provide challenging analyses of “difference” (sexuality, race, gender, class, ability, colonialism, to name a few) in relation to location, space, place, and that use such analyses to extend radical geographic approaches.
If you have an idea for an Antipode book, whether it is a monograph or an edited collection, please contact the Book Series Editors who are happy to discuss ideas for potential book proposals. A proposal should consist of:
- An introduction that clearly outlines the book’s main argument and core contribution, and that situates and contextualises its theoretical and analytical approach in relation to the broader intellectual traditions and the particular trajectories of the project;
- An annotated Table of Contents with a few paragraphs describing each chapter;
- A schedule for completion;
- A clear sense of how the proposed book aligns with complementary titles and relates to and moves forward the broader Antipode project (https://antipodeonline.org/about-the-journal-and-foundation/).
Proposals will be reviewed by the editors and two anonymous referees.
