Gender and Habitus: An Editorial Introduction
AbstractThis special issue of Geography Research Forum is different to many previous issues of the journal. All the papers which comprise this issue are authored by women. The papers were first presented at the Habitus 2000: A Sense of Place conference in Perth in 2000; a conference that was inspired by the French sociologist, Pierre Bourdieu and his notion of the habitus as 'a sense of one's place'. The papers published in this issue represent a feminized habitus. This editorial introduction offers a brief overview of Bourdieu's concept of the habitus and seeks to locate the individual articles, offering readers a sense of their contextual place.
