This volume of the Macmillan Interdisciplinary Handbooks series on gender studies uses varying perspectives to engage central concerns in scholarship on gender and space. Gender: Space creatively engages the correspondence between people and space. The volume explores various sites through which gender, gender norms, and gendered identities are constructed and deconstructed, and the multiple ways gendered bodies make, occupy, reclaim, and discover space in a mutually constituting relationship. Its 20 chapters examine such topics as memory and land loss, LGBT families and public policy, the environment and industrial labor, and food access in the united states. Chapters are written by eminent scholars, are peer reviewed, include illustrations, and offer bibliographies to encourage further research. The volume concludes with a glossary and a comprehensive index.
