about this item

Intimacy, expressed through the feelings, sensations and observations of a researcher, is bound up in the work of the feminist geographer. Tapping into this intimacy and including it in academic writing can help geographers grasp the effects of power in particular places, and can initiate discussions about how to access and work with emotions both ethically and politically throughout the research process.

This book aims to introduce multiple ways of writing intimacy into feminist geography, providing insight into the ways in which feminist geographers are already conceptualizing intimacy and tracing its implications throughout their research. The chapters explore the methodological challenges of intimacy in research and the issues of including one’s own story in research. This book provides valuable reflections on the research process, from work in the field to the writing process, drawing on a global and heterogeneous pool of experts to provide their own experiences with intimacy.

This collection will be valuable reading for students and researchers of Geography, as well as anyone interested in the ethics, practicalities and politics of research methodologies.
