Description - A Companion to Feminist Geography by Lise Nelson

A Companion to Feminist Geography captures the breadth and diversity of this vibrant and substantive field. It shows how feminist geography has altered the landscape of geographical inquiry and knowledge since the 1970s, reframing fundamental approaches across a range of disciplines, including architecture, environmental studies, and geography. Further, it situates feminist geography within the context of geographical thought and within interdisciplinary feminist debates. The Companion, featuring contributors from around the world, explores the diverse literatures that comprise feminist geography today, tracing the emergence of key debates in the field. The volume reflects the various sites and locations from which feminist geographical analysis is being produced; and it includes a systematic assessment of feminist contributions to major sub-fields in geography, covering both established subjects, such as labor, urban, and environmental geography, and emerging areas of scholarship, such as the body and the nation.
