Masculine/Feminine : new issues for geography
From 16 settembre to 19 settembre 2010

While publications on gender issues are ever more common in social sciences, it seems important to focus specifically on what they contribute to geography, understood as a social science that deals with human societies’ spatialities. How can a gender approach challenge our understandings of spatial organizations, and agents’ spatial experiences? Can geography still be seen as reflecting an androcentric viewpoint and naturalizing sexual divisions of space? How can we reflect critically on gender relationships, in the light of other approaches which emphasize the postcolonial, the effects of globalisation, and migrations?
