Chapter 10, Feminist Critical Realism: A Method for Gender and Work Studies in Geography, authored by Karen Falconer Al-Hindi, UNO faculty member.

This innovative collection explores the concept of space as it relates to feminist studies. Utilizing a range of theoretical perspectives, a distinguished group of international scholars crosses over the "thresholds" of difference, methodology, and representation that challenge feminist geography.

The contributors extend our understanding of spatial connections, including the role of social space in the construction of gendered and sexed identities, the need to sensitize feminist methodology to "place" contexts, and the importance of examining representations as sociopolitical and spatial artifacts. This volume has broad interdisciplinary appeal while pointing in specific directions for new research areas, new thresholds, within the discipline of geography.
