Exploring the concept of space as it relates to feminist studies, this book provides different perspectives on the thresholds of difference, methodology, and representation that challenge feminist geography. The essays here extend the understanding of spatial connections, including the role of social space in the construction of gendered and sexed identities, the need to sensitize feminist methodology to place contexts, and the importance of examining representations both as sociopolitical and as spatial artefacts.
