Women’s Space and Men’s Space

    Opis produktu

    The articles included in this book explore the concept of space with regard to gender discourse. Their authors analyse how women and men address, re-define and shape their physical, topographical as well as cultural and literary space; they study how gender affects women’s and men’s spatial and discursive location and how it influences their (spatial) identities. The contributors to this book are young academics, Ph.D. students and university graduates. Apart of the freshness of the approach, the book’s strength lies in the fact that the gendered dimension of space is discussed here from numerous standpoints, such as geographic, psychological, linguistic, sociological, literary and cultural.
