Home/Bodies: Geographies of Self, Place, and Space
Minimum Order Quantity: 25
With Home/Bodies, Wendy Schissel brings together a diverse range of voices which explore the concepts of home, gender, and identity. The metaphorical geographies of bodies, places, and spaces are the backdrop for such topics as: transgendered identities; young people and sexual health; kinetic art and disability; adolescent girls and consumer society; palliative care for dying loved ones; women and social activism; and aboriginal and multicultural perspectives. Qualitative research methods are referenced throughout, including interviews, case studies, focus groups, and narrative research.
Home/Bodies includes contributions by several new-generation feminist scholars and researchers, along with established teachers, researchers, and activists in the academy and the community.
