Panel speaker at the Social Sciences Oxford Minds lecture series on the topic of Space.
Gillian Rose is Professor of Human Geography and Head of the School of Geography and the Environment. Gillian is a cultural geographer; although her empirical research interests have shifted over time, she has long been concerned with the politics of knowledge production. Her first book, Feminism and Geography: The Limits to Geographical Knowledge (1993) is one of the foundational texts of feminist geography. Much of subsequent research focuses on visual culture and methodology. In 2015 she was elected a fellow of the British Academy, and in 2018 became a fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. Her more recent work has explored the visual mediation of urban spaces, particularly by digital technologies.
