Hope Is Where the Heart Is
Applications now open!
Funded by a Right to the Discipline grant from the Antipode Foundation, Black Geographers CIC, the Royal Geographical Society, and the Society for Caribbean Studies will be supporting up to 8 pre-career researcher (PCR) Black university students in paid part-time internships, from June to September 2021.
The internship will provide learning opportunities through group sessions, one-to-one mentoring, skills workshops, and hands-on conference administration. Through a writing retreat and paid writing time, interns will also design and co-produce a collection of critical essays by and for PCR Black geographers, to be published in Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography.
The ‘Fi Wi Road’ project will support Black geographers in building networks, voice and experience within a discipline in which they are consistently under-represented, and often brutally marginalised and squeezed out.
