Space, Place and Gender

Space, Place and Gender

This new book brings together Doreen Massey's key writings on threeareas central to a range of disciplines. In addition, the authorreflects on the development of these ideas and outlines her currentposition on these important issues. The book is organized around the three themes of space, placeand gender. It traces the development of ideas about the socialnature of space and place and the relation of both to issues ofgender and debates within feminism. It is debates in these areaswhich have been crucial in bringing geography to the centre ofsocial sciences thinking in recent years, and this book includeswritings that have been fundamental to that process. Beginning withthe economy and social structures of production, it develops awider notion of spatiality as the product of intersecting socialrelations. In turn this has lead to conceptions of 'place' asessentially open and hybrid, always provisional and contested.These themes intersect with much current thinking about identitywithin both feminism and cultural studies. Each of the themes is preceded by a section which reflects onthe development of ideas and sets out the context of theirproduction. The introduction assesses the current state of play andargues for the close relationship of new thinking on each of thesethemes. This book will be of interest to students in geography,social theory, women's studies and cultural studies.
