Space, Place, and Sex: Geographies of sexualities
Lynda Johnston, Robyn Longhurst
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2010
This accessible and engaging book provides a critical geography of sex and sexuality from the body to the globe. Drawing on queer, feminist, gender, social, and cultural studies, Lynda Johnston and Robyn Longhurst highlight the complex nature of sex and sexuality and how they are connected to both virtual and physical spaces and places. Their aim is to enrich our understanding of sexual identities and practices whether they be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, asexual, queer, or heterosexual.
Drawing on a diverse array of historical and contemporary examples, the authors argue convincingly that sexual politics permeate all places and spaces at every level of geographical scale. Thus, they illustrate, sexuality affects the way people live in and interact with space and place, as space and place in turn affect people's sexuality.Media Release
