Short summary
This paper studies a student movement that opened up spaces for radical geography at the geography department of the University of Zurich in the early 1980s, where these students demanded a new curriculum. Building on archival material and narrative interviews, this paper documents the "thought style" of these student initiatives and illustrates the antagonistic political mood, in which these initiatives operated. This case thereby shows the precariousness of radical theory in geography.
