CFP: Special Issue of Journal of International Women's
Studies (deadline: 15 Nov 2004)

Volumes: New Perspectives on the Gendered Construction
of Space(s)

>From prisons to temples, red-light districts to office
parks, malls to street markets, toilets to tea
gardens, space reflects and reproduces power
relations. This special issue of the JIWS seeks to
examine the topic of gendered constructions of
space(s). How does space structure our understanding
of gender? How does it participate in cultural
constructions of race, class, and sexuality? What are
the political and economic dimensions of the spaces
that we construct and that construct us?
