Gender, race-ethnicity, place and difference

Gender, race-ethnicity, place and difference

Geographies of gender have become increasingly attuned to the place-specific nature of gender relations, interlocking relations of race-ethnicity, sexuality, and location, and the ways gender informs the construction, use and meanings of space, place and territory. My research on the dynamics of gender and development in the Andes spans a wide range of themes, from women's mobilization in social movements, through to development opportunities for racialized impoverished rural women in Ecuador.
