A gendered practice of urban cultivation: performing power and well-being in M'Bour, Senegal

Author: Stephanie A. White
Publisher:A Journal of Feminist Geography
2015

This article outlines how a theoretical approach that explores gender as ‘emplaced performance’ can improve the analytical value of gender by drawing attention to (1) the ways in which gender, as a socially and spatially contingent performance, is enrolled in the relationships that create the city, and (2) how the city, as a constantly evolving and dynamic field of interaction for economic, social, and political processes, (re)configures gender.
