Hull House Geography, 1889-1963

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In turn-of-the-century USA, the female membership of Hull House, in Chicago, founded a unique socio-spatial research collective in a converted family townhouse. Inspired and led by Jane Addams and Ellen Gates, this community of independent, self-taught, resident-researchers undertook cartographic and sociological surveys of city neighbourhoods, in order to expose the social inequalities and epidemiological outbreaks that resulted from unfettered urban growth. Shaped variously through personal conduct, social intervention, political conviction and educational innovation, these versions of geography were located at the margins of pedagogy and praxis, occupying places beyond the university system and associated institutional spaces. - (HC)
