Glossary Other geographical traditions. This definition includes the notions of 'genealogy', 'anarchist roots of geography' and 'early critical geographies' and participates in a wider reassessment of plural and contested geographical traditions. While, in the last decades, the imperial past of geography has been one of the main targets of radical critics within the discipline, now works by early unorthodox and critical authors, including anarchist and anti-colonialist ones, increasingly attract scholarly attention.
Ginsburger, M. Robic, J. Tissier eds. Revolutions and their places, the anarchist geographers and the problem of nationalities in the Age of Empire , in Historical Geographies of Anarchism, Routledge, This chapter addresses the problem of nationalities in the work of early anarchist geographers at My main argument is that the anarchist tradition and the idea of nation stand not in opposition, but in mutual relation, and that such relation was linked to early anti-colonialism in the Age of Empire.
The standpoint of anarchist geographers is a privileged one to understand the anarchist idea of nation because these militants and scholars worked on territories, regions, and borders, thus the definition of what a nation is or should be was part of both their professional duties and their political interests.
White, M. Nieto Olarte and S. In recent years, scholars have started to write the international history of the movement called While one of the declared aims of these authors is to overtake Euro- and Anglo-centric readings of this phenomenon, this task seems far from being fully accomplished, given that most of the latest contributions address cases from the Anglosphere, especially from North-America.
I do this by addressing multilingual works, archives and networks of a circuit of Brazilian geographers who were exiled or variously persecuted by the military dictatorship that ruled their country between and At that time, they played influential but still neglected roles in inspiring critical and radical scholarship worldwide, thanks also to their exile experiences and their multilingualism. My main argument is that these scholars anticipated some aspects of current debates on the decolonisation of social sciences such as the critique of Northern recipes in development studies, the engagement with non-European cultures like those of indigenous and Afro-descendants, and the need for a more pluralist and cosmopolitan geography, one which can connect scholarship and grassroots mobilisations.
Brexit — the process of the UK leaving the European Union — has been a major political issue over Yet, certainly in the UK, the anarchist movement is at its weakest point in a generation, partly having been undermined and outwitted by state-centric populist electoralism most notably, the Labour Party under Corbyn , and partly failing to coherently address the contemporary geo political context.
As geographers, there will be spatially uneven effects of Brexit, within the UK and across Europe and the world, as trade relations, treaties and state regulations become disentangled and realigned. In the context of emergency, it is well documented that communal relations flourish.
Adolphe Blanqui (1798-1854)
Thus, Brexit may be an opportunity to rethink anarchism and anarchist geography — not only for those on the British Isles but also for those across the world who now face opponents who are emboldened by the reactionary discourses of Brexit e. Nevertheless, given the many regressive and violent characteristics of the EU, leaving its control may also reveal opportunities.
Simon Springer University of Victoria, Canada. A misanthrope might compare the vices of our European society to a hidden evil that gnaws at the individual from within, whereas the vices of American society appear outwardly in all of their hideous brutality. The most violent hatred separates factions and races: the slavery advocate abhors the abolitionist, the white loathes the Negro, the native detests the foreigner, the wealthy planter disdains the small landowner, and rivalry of interests creates an insurmountable barrier of mistrust even between related families.
An anarchist praxis within geography continues to inspire and invite new imaginaries and praxis to flourish within the discipline. While wishing to see these anarchist geographies unfold still further, at this point in time - and with the AAG conference being held in New Orleans - we feel it is particularly relevant and important to invite papers that engage directly with the following three areas: 1. The topics of anti-racist and anti-slavery struggles are part of the anarchist tradition since Reclus's sojourn in Louisiana from to and his "anarchist abolitionism", a fight that the anarchist geographer pursued all his life long.
Any paper discussing past, present and future anarchist engagements on these topics is welcome. Anarchist Geographies and Colonialism, postcolonialism, and decolonization Some lasting misunderstandings concern the relations between anarchism and decolonialism. While focusing on the intersection of all forms of oppression state, capital, churches, armies, authorities … anarchism rarely flagged anti-colonialism or postcolonialism as its main feature.
For instance, the anarchist refusal of a political avant-garde anticipated recent political and epistemological claims from decolonial scholars, put in practice by movements of indigenous resistance such as the Zapatistas. Contributions on anarchism and anti-colonialism, de-colonisation, decoloniality and indigeneity are especially welcome. Anarchist Geographies and Critical Pedagogies, Learning, and Teaching in the University Anarchist commitment to pedagogies at all levels, from primary school to university, has been traditionally deployed in both the experimentation of freed schools and universities, self-organised outside any intervention of the state or of main educational institutions, and the work within existing institutions which can often provide a tribune to divulgate critical and anarchist contents.
In these situations, one might find spaces for both experimentation and struggle against political and intellectual domination. Theoretical reflexions and cases of concrete experiences are both welcome in the context of a discussion on challenges to state and mainstream pedagogies and their spatialities.

White shu. Featherstone glasgow. This has implied the critique and de-construction of colonial discourses and representations including imperial geographies, imperial maps, imperial and euro-centric standpoints, racist presentations of different peoples. Nevertheless, relatively fewer efforts have been done until now to study geographies of counter-empire, anti-colonialism, anti-racism and de-colonization.
In the midth century, some radical European scholars, like the French geographers Jean Dresch and Jean Suret-Canale, militated for the de-colonisation of African countries; in the English-speaking world, scholars like James Blaut and Keith Buchanan pioneered then a geographical critique to Euro-centrism. New scholarship has also shown the early emergence of counter-global and anti-colonial networks in several regions, from Northern Atlantic to South Asia, and started to address geographies of resistance, of solidarity, of insubordination, of mutinies, of black and indigenous internationalisms.
The interdisciplinary field of studies linked to the transnational turn in history and social sciences is progressively shedding light on all these scholars and networks, needing nevertheless further research by geographers. After analysing imperial issues in geography, it is time to excavate anti-imperial issues in geography, as well as the geographies of anti-colonialist and subaltern networks and struggles.
