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?

We seek scholarly and creative articles, essays,
poetry, book reviews, and photography that explore
space from a range of perspectives, adopting space as
a critical framework for understanding power
relations, and exploring spatial relations in terms of
gender, sexuality, race, and class.

A range of spaces may be considered: public and
private, international and domestic, centrist and
border, accounted for and overlooked. We invite a
closer look at privileged, partitioned, zoned,
contemplative, glamorous, grotesque and resistant

We look forward to your submissions.

Submissions should be directed to the special issue
editor. All submissions, except for book reviews, must
be received via electronic file no later than 15
November 2004.
