We are delighted to welcome eight interns, funded by the Antipode Foundation and the Society, to support this year’s Annual International Conference.
The interns, who are a mix of undergraduate and master’s geography students from higher education institutions across the UK, will work to support the virtual and in person elements of the conference, as well as have opportunities to present their ideas and experiences at the conference and online. With a range of interests from postcolonial studies and cultural geographies to energy justice perspectives and sustainable geoscience, the interns will have the opportunity to network with a range of geographers throughout the event and gain experience of co-administering an academic conference.
As part of their internship, they will have their academic work and reflections published in Antipode, and attend a writing retreat to support their writing. Each intern will also be mentored by a member of the Society’s Race, Culture and Equality Working Group and receive support from the Black Geographers network.
This year’s interns are:
Britney Assam, University College London
David Oliver Mululu Blagden, Durham University
Marvin Tahoulan, University of Bristol
Maryam Abdu, University College London
Mateen Sedenu , The University of Manchester
Olasubomi Tolu-Ogunpolu, University of Reading
Simi Kolajo, Loughborough University
Sophie Thompson-Hyland, Keele University
