From Nowhere to Everywhere by Gill Valentine
Book DescriptionExplore how lesbians have become more visible in our society! This fascinating book traces the development of lesbian geographies throughout history and examines intangible and physical space that is defined by lesbians. Through intellectual and powerful essays and poems, From Nowhere to Everywhere reveals how lesbian identities and lifestyles today are becoming more publicly articulated in the urban and rural landscape. Throughout this valuable reference you will explore visibility and geographical concepts of "public" and "private" space in the workplace, the home, the university, the street, and the neighborhood and how this space is identified by such things as dress, language, music, and many other ways. You will gain an insider's look at the many facets of lesbian homes, communities, and neighborhoods, including: * the multiple meanings of lesbian homes, in relation to race, class, religious, or ethnic identity, and as places of liberation and oppression due to harassment * opposing views of lesbians and the myths and stereotypes of lesbians in the East-end and West-end of Vancouver * how white, feminist anti-violence activism is being used in anti-oppression struggles * a personal geography of harassment * an exploration of feminist prototypes, (Salamander, Dryad, Soothsayer, and Virgin), and lesbian interpretations of these archetypes * social support, coming out, and relationship satisfaction in lesbian couples From Nowhere to Everywhere is a powerful collection of essays that marks a step forward in the transformation in visibility of lesbian geographies and geographers from nowhere and everywhere.
