A diversity of feminist methods and epistemologies appears across the literature. In an attempt to avoid a reading of these trends as better or worse approximations of historical 'progress', the authors conceptualize them as emplaced within a number of specific social and spatial contexts.
Most recent work is concerned with the production of gender differences as they are worked through economic, political, cultural and sexual differences in the creation of past geographies. The continued need simply to write women into historical narratives and geographies, however, is also evident.

The work of feminist historical geography questions and challenges geography's masculinist historical record. By situating Kingsley's writings in the wider context of gendered discourses of 'home' and 'away', the book offers a new perspective on both travel writing and the culture of imperialism more generally. By drawing upon poststructuralist and feminist theories, she provides a stimulating and scholarly commentary upon the complex relations between Western women and the empire, the nature of nineteenth century British geography and the place of women in the subject's history.
A lively and clearly written account, it is a pleasure to read.

Travel, Gender, and Imperialism. Seller Inventory BBS Language: English. Brand new Book.
Drawing from the life and travels of Mary Kingsley, a nineteenth century travel writer and critic of the Crown Colony system, Alison Blunt cogently examines the relationships among travel, gender and imperialism. Instead of studying either travel generally or women travel writers in the colonial period specifically, Blunt examines both to show how the spatiality and gendering of travel are inseperable.
Underlying her examination are debates about women as a focus of historial research, Western women and imperalism, and the place of women in a historiography of geography.
