Geography and “the visual” are an inseparable duo: a powerful relationship that elicits research and papers in both geographic research and academic geography. Starting from the commentary on Giorda’s book, this short essay proposes a general reflection on the function that visual teaching aids (maps, images) have in producing and reproducing geographical stereotypes and imagery. The commentary specifically focuses on the value that work such as Giorda’s has for those involved in research in the field of geography in education today.

Abstract

Geography and “the visual” are an inseparable duo: a powerful relationship that elicits research and papers in both geographic research and academic geography. Starting from the commentary on Giorda’s book, this short essay proposes a general reflection on the function that visual teaching aids (maps, images) have in producing and reproducing geographical stereotypes and imagery. The commentary specifically focuses on the value that work such as Giorda’s has for those involved in research in the field of geography in education today.
