In partnership with the Housing Justice in Unequal Cities Network, UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality and Democracy, and La Hidra Cooperativa in Barcelona, the Antipode Foundation convened the 8th Institute for the Geographies of Justice (IGJ) from June 13th to 17th 2022, in Barcelona, Spain. In keeping with the mandate of Antipode, IGJ 2022 took up questions of research and scholarship in radical geography. In addition, this institute focused on the theme of housing justice. Learning from housing justice movements in Barcelona, and strengthening housing justice as a field of inquiry through theory and methodology, the institute paid close attention to the relationship between radical geography and social justice struggles.
IGJ 2022 built on the seven past institutes organized by the Antipode Foundation as well as the Summer Institute on Methodologies for Housing Justice organized by the UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality and Democracy in 2019. Taking the form of an interactive workshop with 20-25 participants, IGJ is meant to be a space of learning, collaboration, and dialogue for doctoral students and early career researchers in geography and related disciplines.
