While this book is theory-rich, it is exceptionally accessible, with chapters building theory into case study from the ground up. This book will be a valuable read to the comparatively uninitiated with regard to geographies of sexualities because of its accessible, targeted use of theory and case study.
It will also be invaluable to feminists, cultural geographers, gender researchers, and queer theorists, as a foundation work outlining future directions in research that does justice to both place and sexualities.
Whether considered alone or as a collection of tightly connected contributions, each chapter in the book mixes original research with critical reviews of existing literature to present a well written and carefully nuanced argument. While the focus of the book might be geographies of sexualities, the authors introduce key geographical concepts such as place, space, scale and embodiment with a rare and refreshing clarity.
Space, Place, and Sex : Geographies of Sexualities
For these reasons and more, this book should be read by both scholars and students alike and would serve as an excellent text on any course introducing Human Geography. It will be of interest to social and cultural geographers, as well as queer theorists who need to enrich their geographical imaginations.
Sexual politics are shown to be integral to everyday lives, making this an important book not only for geographies of sexualities but geography itself, and one that should be on every human geography reading list. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This edited book engages with the rapidly emerging field of the geographies of digital sexualities, that is, the interlinkages between sexual lives, material and virtual geographies and digital practices.
