More About This Textbook

Overview

Drawing together established and emerging authors in the field, this volume offers a broad, interdisciplinary, international exploration of geographies of sexualities. The overarching theme is the spatialities of sexualities. Central to the book is a consideration of the emergence of distinctly spatial queer theories within geography over the past fifteen years and these are examined in relation to broader political currents, theoretical interventions and sexualized practices.

The past decade or so has witnessed a proliferation and diversification of writings on sexualities, space and place. However, since the publication of 'Mapping Desire' in 1995, and with the exception of some very thought-provoking collections of specific themes within geographies of sexualities, there has not been a text that explores the theoretical, empirical and political developments across the breadth of this subject.

Drawing together established and emerging authors in the field, this volume offers a broad, interdisciplinary, international exploration of geographies of sexualities. The overarching theme is the spatialities of sexualities. Central to the book is a consideration of the emergence of distinctly spatial queer theories within geography over the past fifteen years. These queer theories have engaged with broader theoretical debates about power relations, embodiment, and the limits of representation, amongst others. These developments run throughout the book and are examined in relation to broader political currents, theoretical interventions and sexualized practices.
