Abstract

Today, perhaps more than ever in the history of our discipline, there is an undisputed international hegemony of a single geography: the Anglo-American. This has set the patterns of intellectual debate taking place in different parts of the world, largely due to the hegemony of English. However, this linguistic hegemony is a form of power that dignifies certain academic traditions, while disempowering others. This article first refers to the situation of international geography a decade after a debate on this issue was launched in international forums on critical geography and, secondly, the case of feminist geography, which is not an exception in this process.
