Professor Gillian Rose FBA
About this Fellow
Gillian Rose is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Oxford, UK, and has previously worked at the Queen Mary, University of London, the University of Edinburgh and The Open University. Her current research interests focus on contemporary digital visual culture, urban spatialities and visual research methodologies. Her most recent funded research has explored how a range of 'smart' technologies are designed and used in the UK city of Milton Keynes, and she is extending this work into the digital mediation of urban spaces more broadly. She is interested in how digital technologies of all kinds are encouraging us to see and experience urban spaces differently, whether we are citizens, planners, politicians or filmmakers. As well as a number of papers on images and ways of seeing in urban and domestic spaces, she is the author of Feminism and Geography (Polity, 1993) and Doing Family Photography: The Domestic, The Public and The Politics of Sentiment (Ashgate, 2010). She is also a leading scholar of visual research methods. The fourth edition of her bestselling Visual Methodologies was published in 2016 by Sage.
