The Institute for Human Geography is pleased to announce the start of the Human Geography Small Grants Program.
A huge effort, in terms of labor and time, over 7 years, has produced both a viable new radical journal and a surplus of funds that can be used to support radical activism, research, writing. So the Institute for Human Geography announces its small grant program (up to $5,000 per grant) and invites applications. The main criteria on which proposals will be examined include
- Radical potential of the work
- Effectiveness of the proposal
- Eventual contribution to Human Geography journal
- Past commitment to Human Geography (article, subscription, review of article, etc)
Applications consisting of the following will be reviewed by a Committee consisting of the Editor, the Web Editor, the Book Review Editor and the Opinions Editor:
- Cover page with names and affiliations of the applicant(s); short summary of previous work; statement on the radical character of the proposed research or activism; statement on the possible publication of results in Human Geography; statement on the applicant’s past commitment to the journal.
- This should be followed by a five-paged, double-spaced explanation of the work to be supported.
- A one-paged budget detailing what the funds would be spent on.
The application package should be emailed to Institute for Human Geography: firstname.lastname@example.org before two annual deadlines of April 1 and September 1.
The context for this is provided by an editorial on “The Neoliberaization of Knowledge” carried in Hg Volume 1, Number 1 (2008)
