Gender and Landscape is a feminist inquiry into a long-ignored area of study, the landscape. Although there has been an exhaustive investigation into issues of gender as they intersect with space and place, very little has been written about the gendering of the landscape.
This volume provides a bridge between feminist discussions of space and place as something "lived" and landscape interpretations as something "viewed". The first of its kind, this book demonstrates that feminist critiques of landscape and place are not exclusive ontological realms; rather, they are mutually constitutive. The chapters in this book argue that the gendering of space and place create moral codes within societies that can be read in the landscape.
