Gender, Space, Architecture
My research on feminist theory, architectural history and the Burlington Arcade, published as 6 book chapters and 2 refereed articles, developed into research on rambling as a gendered urban movement in early nineteenth century London, published as an authored book: Jane Rendell, The Pursuit of Pleasure: Gender, Space and Architecture in Regency London, (London: The Athlone Press/Continuum, Rutgers University Press, 2002). The topic of over 40 invited talk/papers (8 international), 17 book chapters, 6 refereed articles, and 3 keynote contributions, the research has been translated into Japanese, Chinese, and German. The book has been reviewed by academic journals such as Critical Enquirer, Cultural Geography, Historical Geography, The London Journal and Urban History. The research closely relates to two co-edited books: Jane Rendell, Barbara Penner and Iain Borden (eds.), Gender, Space, Architecture: an Interdisciplinary Introduction, (London: Routledge, 1999). 432pp., 17 illustrations and Iain Borden and Jane Rendell (eds) InterSections: Architectural Histories and Critical Theories (London: Routledge, 2000).330pp,, 83 illustrations.More recently I have been examining more closely some tendencies of contemporary feminist spatial practice. Certain terms and concepts, processes and modes of analytic enquiry and interpretation, as well as aspects of critical and creative production appear across the work of a wide range of feminist practitioners in and outside architecture. I have noted 5 thematics in the current dialogue between feminism and architecture, which feature as the location of original new research in academe and the profession: collectivity, interiority, alterity, performativity, materiality. See two recent forthcoming publications: ‘Tendencies and Trajectories: Feminist Approaches in Architecture’, Architectural Theory Handbook, Stephen Cairns, Greg Crysler, Hilde Heynen, Gwendolyn Wright (eds) (London: Sage, forthcoming 2011) and ‘Critical Spatial Practices: A Feminist Sketch of some Modes and what Matters ’, Lori Brown (ed) Feminist Practices (London: Ashgate, forthcoming 2011).
