Subjectivities, Knowledges, and Feminist Geographies: The Subjects and Ethics of Social Researchby Liz Bondi
Research about people always makes assumptions about the nature of humans as subjects. This collaboration by a group of feminist researchers looks at subjectivity in relation to researchers, the researched, and audiences, as well as at the connections between subjectivity and knowledge. The authors argue that subjectivity is spatialized in embodied, multiple, and fractured ways, challenging the dominant notions of the rational, 'bounded' subject. A highly original contribution to feminist geography, this book is equally relevant to social science debates about using qualitative methodologies and to ongoing discussions on the ethics of social research.
