Gender, Space and Society: Gender, Space and Society

About the Series

The series on Gender, Space and Society publishes innovative feminist work that analyses men's and women's lives from a perspective that exposes and is committed to challenging social inequalities and injustices. The series reflects the ongoing significance and changing forms of gender, and of feminist ideas, in diverse social, geographical and political settings and adopts innovative methodological and philosophical approaches to understanding gender, space and society.

The themes it covers include, but are not restricted to:

  • The constitution and transformation of gender in different political and economic regimes around the world.
  • Men's and women's lived experiences of femininities and masculinities in diverse spaces and environments.
  • The ways in which gender is co-constituted and intersects with a range of other social identities, such as race, ethnicity, nationality, class, age, generation, religion, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, body size and health status in different places and times.
  • Challenging distinctions and offering new understandings of the relationships between public/private, economic/social (re)production, geopolitical/intimate and so on.
  • Destabilising the binary man/woman, and developing more complex ways of understanding gendered social and spatial relations.
  • Developing theoretical perspectives that shed light on the changing nature of gender relations, such as indigenous, postcolonial, queer, Marxist, poststructuralist and non-representational feminist theories.
  • Exploring innovation in methodology, praxis, knowledge co-production and activism as means of challenging social injustices.
