Reclaiming Rural Ruralities: (Anti)Metronormative (De)Colinization of Rural Space and Place

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper theorizes a metrocentricity and metronormativity that prevent spatial scholars from adequately conceptualizing rurality, and thus from recognizing the place-based knowledges of rural people. The metronormative epistemological lens through which space is constructed produces a rural that is defined in terms of urban knowledges. As a result, urban imaginaries of rurality – a rurality absent and intolerant of the other – have colonized locally-constructed and heterogeneous rural spaces produced by actors within them. Drawing on examples from the rural sexualities literature, the paper highlights how an epistemological colonization of the rural by the urban deems the knowledges of rural others, by definition, nonexistent, thus critically limiting the study of othered rural actors.
