Maps the divisions that stall the production of knowledge in theatre and performance studies, queer studies, and women's studies. Each of Jill Dolan's three academic locations -- theatre and performance studies, lesbian/gay/queer studies (LGQ studies), and women's studies -- is both interdisciplinary and fraught with divisions between theory and practice.

Each of Jill Dolan's three academic locations -- theatre and performance studies, lesbian/gay/queer studies (LGQ studies), and women's studies -- is both interdisciplinary and fraught with divisions between theory and practice. As teacher, administrator, author, and performer, Dolan places her professional labor in relation to issues of community, pedagogy, public culture, administration, university missions, and citizenship. She works from the assumption that the production and dissemination of knowledge can be forms of activism, extending conversations on radical politics in the academy by other writers, such as Cary Nelson, Michael Berube, Gerald Graff, and Richard Ohmann. The five interconnected essays in Geographies of Learning map the divisions and dissensions that stall the production of progressive knowledge in theatre and performance studies, LGQ studies, and women's studies, while at the same time exploring some of the theoretical and pedagogical tools these fields have to offer one another.

    There are useful ideas that everyone can take away from Dolan’s book. In today’s political climate where false news accelerates Right-wing politics, I believe it is important to invite scholars for a different pedagogic approach to collaborate in social resistance and social critique. Considering that scholars and students are divided by false binaries, she reminds us that actually most of us are working for the same goal and fighting against the same opponent.

Considering that scholars and students are divided by false binaries, she reminds us that actually most of us are working for the same goal and fighting against the same opponent. From this point of view, I also think the geography title is chosen intelligently to attach the idea of various aspects of progressive learning in different locations. She persuasively argues for the necessity of collaboration, respect, and understanding in diversified communication and disciplines she discussed.
