Summary:
"The motivation for this paper came from multiple conversations between the editors about gender and environment theory and practice. From our own research on the gendered politics that articulate particular spaces, environments, and subjects across scales (Hawkins, forthcoming; Ojeda, 2010), we felt the need to review current and past work in the field, looking for theoretical and methodological clues on how to better understand the relation between gendered subjects and the gendered environments they signify, inhabit, and transform. With this broad question in mind, we did a thorough reading of gender and environment work within geography with the desire to review how current and past work relate to and diverge from one another, and how current work in the field has encompassed theoretical advances in feminist theory, nature-society theory, and analyses of the social production of nature" (Hawkins et al. 2011, 237).
