cultural geography and the digital: what’s been written by cultural geographers?

I’m working on the written version of the Progress in Human Geography lecture I gave at the Royal Geographical Society/Institute of British Geographers annual conference in London last month. The opening section marvels at cultural geographers’ lack of engagement with anything digital.

The only references it currently contains are:

Bingham, N., 1996. Object-ions: from technological determinism towards geographies of relations. Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, 14(6), 635 – 657.

Bingham, N., Valentine, G. & Holloway, S.L., 1999. Where do you want to go tomorrow? Connecting children and the Internet. Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, 17(6), 655 – 672.

Bingham, N., Valentine, G. & Holloway, S., 2001. Life around the screen: re-framing young people’s use of the internet. In N. Watson & S. Cunningham-Burley, eds. Reframing Bodies. London: Palgrave Macmillan, pp. 228–243.

Crang, M., Crang, P. & May, J. eds., 1999. Virtual Geographies: Bodies, Spaces, Relations, London: Routledge.

Holloway, S.L., Valentine, G. & Bingham, N., 2000. Institutionalising technologies: masculinities, femininities, and the heterosexual economy of the IT classroom. Environment and Planning A, 32(4), 617 – 633.

Parr, H., 2003. Research bodies in virtual space. In A. Blunt et al., eds. Cultural Geography in Practice. London: Arnold, pp. 55–68.

Given the long shadow that cultural geography casts across the discipline, of course it’s rather tricky to demarcate who is and who is not a ‘cultural geographer’ – and my list obviously and deliberately excludes the very rich literature on critical GIS, neo-geographies, participatory mapping and so on, as well as Rob Kitchin’s groundbreaking work.

But if any of you are aware of any other publications in cultural geography on digital technologies that are not related to mapping, please send them my way!

  1. Hi Gillian – see work on the digital by my colleague Sam Kinsley here at Exeter? Some in print, some still in process….
    All best,
