Gender in Spanish Urban Spaces : Literary and Visual Narratives of the New Millennium Hardback

Edited by Maria C. DiFrancesco, Debra J. Ochoa

Part of the Hispanic Urban Studies series


This edited collection examines the synergistic relationship between gender and urban space in post-millennium Spain.

Despite the social progress Spain has made extending equal rights to all citizens, particularly in the wake of the Franco regime and radically liberating Transicion, the fact remains that not all subjects-particularly, women, immigrants, and queers-possess equal autonomy.

The book exposes visible shifts in power dynamics within the nation's largest urban capitals-Madrid and Barcelona-and takes a hard look at more peripheral bedroom communities as all of these spaces reflect the discontent of a post-nationalistic, economically unstable Spain.

As the contributors problematize notions of public and private space and disrupt gender binaries related with these, they aspire to engender discussion around civic status, the administration of space and the place of all citizens in a global world.
