In this innovative reader, Pamela Moss and Karen Falconer Al-Hindi present a unique, reflective approach to what feminist geography is and who feminist geographers are. Their carefully crafted textbook invigorates feminist debates about space, place, and knowledges with a fine balance among teaching chapters, reprints, and original essays. Offering an anthology that actually questions the very purpose of an anthology, the editors create and then negotiate a tension between reinforcing and destabilizing scholarly authority. Students and scholars will find both the approach and the discussion essential for a full and nuanced understanding of feminist geography.
Pamela Moss is professor and associate dean in the faculty of human and social development at the University of Victoria. Karen Falconer Al-Hindi is associate professor of geography and women's studies and director of women's studies at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
