  FEMINISM and SOCIAL THEORY in GEOGRAPHY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
In feminist urban geography and political ecology, GIS and remote sensing are involved in qualitative research that explores the multiple realities (and stories) of livelihood and land-cover change in various cultural contexts.
Outside geography, feminist scholars in cultural and media studies have explored the role of GIS as a new representational medium.
In an attempt to traverse this gap, the notion of a feminist geopolitics is elaborated; it aims to bridge scholarship in feminist and political geography by creating a theoretical and political space in which geopolitics becomes a more gendered and racialized project, one that is epistemologically situated and embodied in its conception of security.

 [No title]
The subject of her book is how one type of human geography, "masculinist," has been constituted and defined as geography in male-dominated academia, and how feminist perspectives can respond to it.
Though Rose brings together some of the substantive works in feminist geography, her primary concern is with the way geographers think and produce work, and she therefore focuses more on the "gender of geography" than the "geography of gender." [3] A lot is packed into this small volume (200 pages, including notes).
Self-representation is key to women's advancement in geography, she says, as is recognizing our multiple axes of identity, and practicing "strategic mobility" by moving between the center of academic geography and its margin to ultimately subvert that center.

 History :: Department of Geography, University of Kentucky
The geography courses were transferred to the new department and additional course offerings in geography were approved for undergraduate and master's degree programs.
While there was evidence of interest in geography both in and outside the university, educators deplored the meager offerings and the ineffective teaching of geography in the state's secondary schools.
The need for a separate geography program was clearly demonstrated during the next two decades, but it was the decision of President Donovan to recommend the establishment of a Geography Department within the College of Arts and Sciences in 1944.

 Feminist geography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Feminist geography is an approach to study in human geography which applies the theories, methods and critiques of feminism to the study of the human environment, society and geographical space.
Feminist geography is often considered part of a broader postmodern approach to the subject which is not primarily concerned with the development of conceptual theory in itself but rather focuses on the real experiences of individuals and groups in their own localities, upon the geographies that they live in within their own communities.
One example of a global topic of feminist geography research is the worldwide migration of women from the Third World to the First World to perform domestic labor and sex work.

For example, the work of feminist theorist Nancy Fraser plays a critical role in McDowell's discussion of equality and sexual difference, while anthropologist James Clifford's "translocal culture" provides an important touchstone for her discussion of migration and travel.
In Chapter 4, "Community, City and Locality," the author explores a key topic in feminist research: the social and cultural construction of gender relations and its expression in the built environment of urban areas.

 Clark University | Economic Geography
The second section takes up several key themes in the large body of feminist research on global economic processes, which is also largely absent from the economic globalization literature: the gendering of work, gender and structural adjustment programs, and mobility and diaspora.
The article demonstrates how a feminist analysis of globalization entails far more than recognizing the importance of gender; it requires substantial rethinking of how to conceptualize, study, and act in relation to economic globalization.
I argue that economic globalization is an inherently geographic phenomenon in relation to the transcendence and switchability of geographic scales and discursive practices as sociospatial constructions.

 Denis Linehan Nature of Geography GG3101 UCC Cork
This level of sophisitication, it is argued, is demanded by the new geographies of globalisation and the development of social movements at the end of the 20th century which have demanded new rights for the individual and new communities.
At the heart of these new geographies it is argued, is a re-consideration of the human subject and the ways in which it is placed and spaced.
It is argued also the feminist geography forms part of the `cultural turn', in that it demands that we formulate space and place in terms of social relations.
