A generally solid feminist argument about how the discipline of geography has fallen victim to gender bias, albeit one with some regrettable slippages into the jargon of the high-theory era. She's particularly effective when arguing against the "aesthetic" problem of supposedly humanist geographers who completely ignored the ways their privilege shaped their experiences of spaces and places.

However, like so much theory, it's great at diagnosing, and great at provoking, but it doesn't provide much of a platform, other than some shit about "oscillation.

It is no surprise that in war-torn and conflict-driven areas targeted by dominant and military powers, the sense of instability escalates within individuals who find themselves held captive and overwhelmed by a gloomy forecast.

Oscillation theory is shit tho.
Jun 19, Chelsea Szendi rated it it was amazing Shelves: theory , gender. In many ways this book was an introduction to many trends in both feminism and geography for me, and it was incredibly readable. Rose's emphasis on oscillating between "strategies" of critique resonated with me, and her interpretation of humanist geography as "aesthetic masculinism" is a concept I'd like to play with in my own work.
Note: This Gillian Rose is not to be confused with the philosopher of the same name and also a woman of great intellect!

Interesting insights about the masculinist bias of much geographical study, with useful readings of paintings like David's Oath of the Horatii and Gainsborough's Mr and Mrs Andrews. Rose comments on the work of previous feminist geographers and advocates awareness of the assumptions that are too often taken for granted. Jun 16, Emily rated it it was amazing. Great overview of not only feminist theory as applied to geography but also to the current state of women within the geographic discipline. Well written, easy to read and comprehend.

Andrews'' portrait 92 and tells us that the Marxist view of the painting sees the capitalistic depiction of property, whereas the feminist vision reveals the passive and reproductive role of the woman. But as Nash stressed we cannot skip the intentions of the artists Nash, At the sixth chapter, we can say that Rose enters in the world of feminist geography and criticises on the socialist-feminist geography.
So, a feminist aspect was needed and the socialist-feminist geography was formed, which tried to give explanations of inequality and relations between capitalism and patriarchy Johnston et al, The basic tool for the analysis of this socio-gender inequality was hidden behind the terms of production work-public and the reproduction birth-domesticity. For Rose this approach must be severely criticised because it presents reproduction as sterile-from-feeling female work and she thinks that a new type of space must be defined, away from the production- reproduction model.
At the last chapter of the book, Gillian Rose evolves the new type of politicized space that the end of the sixth chapter demanded. This new kind of space is named as ''paradoxical'', it comprehends the ''positivity of the otherness'', allows radical difference A clear definition of the term is not provided and this is one of the weak points of the book. The quote: ''This space is paradoxical because, as argued it must imagine the position of being both prisoner and exile, both within and without '' can be read as a poetic and passionate for some vague and melodramatic definition of a feminist, but it cannot define adequately the new term that Rose tries to discover.
After presenting and criticised the basic features of each chapter, we can conclude that ''Feminism and Geography: the Limits of Geographical Knowledge'' by Gillian Rose achieves its primary goal to be a book about the gender of geography.
Written in , its author can summarise the evolution of the feminist movement in geography. Rose criticises the masculinist way of thinking that has dominated the academic discipline of geography all these years, she makes a review of the two previous tendencies in feminist geography geography of women, socialist-feminist geography , she critically organises their acquired knowledge and finally she creates her own feminist way of understanding the spaces, places and landscapes.
Her influences to this effort are the psychoanalysis Lacanian theory, Freud's mirror-stage , the post-structuralistic theory Derrida's deconstruction and some elements of the Neo-Marxist theory Lefebvre's social space. The theories used in her research show the interdisciplinary character of feminism and geography. Written in a dense way and dealing with several philosophical movements this book can be characterised by some as ''difficult to understand''. Lastly, one can presume that Rose's effort is enclosed in the sphere of feminist geography of difference, a branch of the feminist geography that is produced by the third wave of feminism diversity of women and tries to concentrate upon the construction of gendered identities, differences among women, gender and constructions of nature Johnston et al, Rose with this book is practising the post-modern feminism by avoiding the generalizations about women, by appreciating any kind of differences, by giving importance to concepts such as sexuality, age, ethnicity and by challenging dualisms.
Rose is so ardent with her theory and her point of view that even if someone does not agree with her ideas completely, he can witness her passion and dedication about what she writes. Besides, challenging the existing orthodoxies cannot be done by being calm. References Johnston R. Nash C. Related Papers.
