Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Feminist Geography in Practice offers a fast-paced field guide to feminist research in Geography…. One of the key contributions of this book is that it develops and demonstrates the understanding that feminist research always takes place at the intersection of the personal, the political, and the academic…. This is a timely textbook that represents the maturing of a field. It will be invaluable for courses in research methodology and in feminist geography, and it should be mandatory reading for students and practitioners who are undertaking – or want to undertake – research that is explicitly feminist." – Professor Joni Seager, The University of Vermont
