Professor Gillian Rose FBA

Professorial Fellow in Geography


I am a cultural geographer. I was awarded my PhD from the University of London and I taught at the University of London, Edinburgh University and The Open University prior to joining the University of Oxford in 2017. I was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 2015.

Research Interests

I have a longstanding interest in how images of many kinds mediate relations with places, spaces and landscapes. My current research focuses on digital visualisations. Digital cameras, visualising software and image sharing platforms are transforming contemporary visual culture and I am interested in thinking through those transformations, particularly how they are shifting our experiences of cities.

I am also interested in visual research methods; the fourth edition of my book Visual Methodologies was published by Sage in 2016.
