This virtual issue looks to recognise the contributions of black scholars (and scholars of colour more broadly) through highlighting a collection of papers.
Black scholars (and scholars of colour more broadly) have made a significant and sustained contribution to Geography within the Society’s journals. This virtual issue looks to recognise these contributions through highlighting a collection of papers and scholars who have published with us over the last few years. The collection is categorised into four primary themes, although many of the papers overlap these themes.
First are papers that address the nature of Black Geographies. Second are those that deal with the experience of being a Black scholar in the contemporary academy, where immense and often overwhelming prejudices are still all too prevalent. Third are papers that use geographic theory to better understand Black lives around the world. Fourth are papers that seek to use Black Geographies and anti-racist theory to create a better future within and beyond the academy.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of papers on these topics within the Society’s journals and books, and of course there are many other significant contributions published in other journals, books and blogs (see for example lists from the University of British Columbia, The AAG Black Geographies Specialty Group, Berkeley, and Places Journal).
