Space, Text, and Gender: An Anthropological Study of the Marakwet of Kenya
This groundbreaking anthropological study strikingly illustrates how we can use different interpretations of place to learn more about a society, and demonstrates the value of a feminist approach to the analysis of changing systems of representation. Henrietta Moore focuses on the relationship between the organization of household space and gender relations, showing how that relation shifts due to changing social and economic conditions, including such factors as wage labor and education. This updated edition contains a new foreword and afterword in which Moore relates her work to more recent developments around gender, resistance, difference, and spatiality.
