Women and the City in French Literature and Culture

Reconfiguring the Feminine in the Urban Environment

An exciting, interdisciplinary collection of essays examining women’s relationship to the city, which radically challenges many of the accepted commonplaces surrounding women’s roles and positions within an urban space typically characterized as masculine. These essays form part of the wider movement in academic research to redress the gendered imbalance of perspectives on a range of subjects, allowing us to look anew at French and Francophone culture and history as part of this feminist rewriting.
