Gender

Research focused in the area of Feminist Geography examines the gendered dynamics of spatial processes. We investigate how gender affects the political, economic, cultural and environmental events that shape and are shaped by geographic processes. We combine feminist theory with critical race theory, post-colonial theory and Marxist approaches for understanding the social dynamics of power and resistance. At the graduate level, we offer a dual-degree program for students who would like to obtain a doctorate or a master's degree in both Geography and in Women's Studies.
