  • Advancing Radical Food Geographies Praxis through Participatory Film

    • Authors: Charles Z. Levkoe, Kristen Lowitt, Sarah Furlotte, Dean Sayers
      Pages: 762 - 790
      Abstract: The academic field of geography is deeply embedded within capitalist and settler colonial logics and has played a major role in suppressing and concealing Indigenous histories along with rights claims, cultures, and practices. While geography’s origins are deeply problematic, over the past decades, many scholars and practitioners have offered counter theoretical and practical perspectives and approaches. Radical food geographies praxis is one such example that is rooted in engaged and socially relevant theory, practice, and reflection. In this article, we present reflections from our experience with radical food geographies research praxis through a collaborative food sovereignty, action-oriented project co-developed and co-led by two settler academics, a documentary filmmaker, and the Chief of Batchewana First Nation. From 2018-2022, we embarked on an effort to share stories of Batchewana First Nation’s historical and current fishing practices, culture, and governance through the co-creation of a feature length documentary film titled, Lake Superior Our Helper: Stories from Batchewanaung Anishinabek Fisheries ( To write this paper, we engaged in a process of collective autoethnography that involved documenting our individual reflections on the project and then bringing these perspectives into dialogue. Emerging from this process, we share our insights for an engaged research praxis, focusing on meaningful and authentic relationships and partnership building, participatory film as a tool for collaborative research, and radical food geographies. We present these insights with the aim of improving our own individual and collaborative practice and to share our learnings with other scholars, activists, and community practitioners engaged in similar partnership-based and praxis-oriented geographic research.

  • Celebrando los 250 Años de Nacimiento del Buen Geógrafo
           Alexander von Humboldt

    • Authors: Sofia Zaragocín, Manuel Bayón Jiménez
      Pages: 791 - 816
      Abstract: Durante el año 2019 en distintas partes de América Latina se celebró el nacimiento de Alexander von Humboldt. Este texto analiza desde una geografía descolonial y antirracista lo que significa la celebración de Humboldt en términos de la racialización del espacio. Asombrados de la falta de acercamientos críticos a la celebración de Humboldt, seguimos a los eventos desarrollados en el Ecuador para comprender los discursos y prácticas alrededor de estas actividades. En base al análisis de lo que observamos en tres eventos especialmente emblemáticos, sostenemos que la celebración de Alexander von Humboldt fomenta el blanqueamiento del espacio en América Latina.

  • Comics and Zines for Creative Research Impact

    • Authors: Gemma Sou, Sarah Marie Hall
      Pages: 817 - 841
      Abstract: We contribute to critical debates about the ethics, politics and praxis of research impact by drawing on our experiences of translating research into a comic and a zine. We demonstrate how comics and zines construct ethical and nuanced depictions of socio-politically marginalised groups, moving away from ‘damage centred’ research frameworks. Comics and zines enable readers to access places and moments that other mediums are less able to, and they gesture toward a participatory, slowed-down practice of research engagement. Finally, we suggest that current indicators of impact ought to consider the methods and praxis of impact, rather than focus on measurements related to outputs, as a way to creatively encourage research to meaningfully engage with participants and publics.

  • Rethinking Translation

    • Authors: Serin Houston, Dan Trudeau
      Pages: 842 - 859
      Abstract: The term “translation” shows up in myriad sites within and outside of academia. It is frequently used to explain processes of movement and connection between languages, places, contexts, and ideas. Despite this ubiquity, translation as a concept is undertheorized within social science academic discourse. This paper responds to this gap by epistemologically rethinking translation and arguing that translation is emergent and geographic. The practices, processes, and politics of translation, therefore, can generate conditions for social transformation, which can lead to co-liberation. With this in mind, we draw on ideas of “improvisation,” “accompaniment,” and “emergent strategy” to conceptualize our rethinking of translation. We illustrate the possibilities of our rethinking by tracing translation within and through the Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) in Seattle, Washington, a municipal government-led endeavor to eliminate institutional racism and race-based disparities. Situating translation as emergent and geographic shifts attention to the ways and contexts through which possibilities for social change emerge in time and place. Thus, our theorizing of translation has broad utility for critical geographic inquiry and the specific study and praxis of local scale policy-making and governance.

      Pages: 860 - 877
      Abstract: Partendo dal testo di Rachele Borghi Decolonialità e Privilegio (2020), questo scambio a quattro voci realizzato online nel pieno della pandemia interroga alcune delle questioni fondamentali del dibattito accademico critico contemporaneo: posizionalità; linguaggi; produzione di sapere critico all’interno dell’università neoliberista e rapporto con i movimenti sociali; metodologie di ricerca, etica e cura; pedagogia, condivisione e sapere incarnato.
