Synopsis

In the twenty-first century we speak of a geospatial revolution, but over one hundred years ago another mapping revolution was in motion. Women's lives were in motion: they were playing a greater role in public on a variety of fronts. As women became more mobile (physically, socially, politically), they used and created geographic knowledge and maps. The maps created by American women were in motion too: created, shared, distributed as they worked to transform their landscapes.





Long overlooked, this women's work represents maps and mapping that today we would term community or participatory mapping, critical cartography and public geography. These historic examples of women-generated mapping represent the adoption of cartography and geography as part of women's work. While cartography and map use are not new, the adoption and application of this technology and form of communication in women's work and in multiple examples in the context of their social work, is unprecedented.





This study explores the implications of women's use of this technology in creating and presenting information and knowledge and wielding it to their own ends. This pioneering and original book will be essential reading for those working in Geography, Gender Studies, Women's Studies, Politics and History.

Christina E. Dando is Professor of Geography at the University of Nebraska Omaha. She received her B.A. in Geography and English from the University of North Dakota and her M.S. and Ph.D.s in Geography from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research interests include the impacts of media and technology on human perception and interaction with the environment, particularly the Great Plains. She is also interested in gender and geography, how landscape and environment have long been gendered as well as how gender impacts human experience and interaction with the environment. She is a member of the American Association of Geographers and of the Society of Woman Geographers. When not researching and writing, she enjoys exploring new landscapes and reading for sheer pleasure.
