Nominations Open for International Workshop Awards

Deadline: 31 May 2018

The Antipode Foundation is seeking nominations for International Workshop Awards 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. It strives 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. The foundation encourages 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, and that trespass and disrupt disciplinary borders.

Prize Information

The Antipode Foundation expects to allocate each successful application up to £10,000 (ten thousand pounds sterling, 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.

Eligibility Information

  • 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 August 2018 and 31st July 2019. Those who have already received funding for a previous workshop are not eligible to apply for another.
  • Eligible expenses may include economy-class travel, translation, accommodation and catering.
  • It is a policy of the Antipode Foundation not to pay university overheads and indirect costs, or university staff salaries and oncosts. There is an established convention in the UK and elsewhere that grants paid by charities generally cover only a proportion of the work to be done, with institutions finding the remainder from other funding sources. Their grants are exclusively for the promotion and advancement of social scientific research, education and scholarship in the field of radical and critical geography.
