The focal theme for this issue is:

The Geography of Gender: Place, Space and Contexts

 

Concept Note

It is a commonly acknowledged fact that gender practices, roles and imaginaries are “situated,” and the context, and location of the situatedness have deep impact on them. Therefore, place and/or space are intricately involved in the activities related to gender formation and practices. Precisely, geography has a role to play in the formation and analysis of the epistemological as well as ontological formation of gender. Moreover, with the change of geographical locations, gender politics and activities change with the change in cultural practices, socio-political and religious imperatives. A quick look at the genealogy of Third World Feminism clearly points to the role of geographical factors. The socio-cultural and religio-political shifts that are discernible with the change from First World to Third Word are undoubtedly related to cultural geography that necessitates a separate agency for the Third World gender issues. The same is applicable for the queer questions also.  All these observations underline an intensive as well as extensive relation between gender and geography which requires critical exploration of the area.

The upcoming issue (July 2022) of postScriptum intends to focus on the role of place, space and geography in the understanding and formation for gender roles, practices and imaginaries.

 

The issue purports to focus on, but does not restrict to, the following sub-themes:

  • Imaginaries of Gender and Geography
  • Place, Space and Gender
  • The role of spatial context in Gender Studies.
  • Work Place, spatial politics and the Gender 
  • ‘Diversity’ and ‘Difference’ in the context of Gender Studies and Geography
