Queer Women: Identity, Space, and Community Building.

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



Abstract:

The existence or lack of public space and its relation to community and community development is widely under-conceptualized. The ways in which specific groups use spatial tools in order to develop what is traditionally considered “community” is highly determined by the specific group and its access to such space. Women who identify with categories such as queer have specific relations to space, particularly public space. Literature shows that this group is deemed “unmappable” or “placeless” because of their lack of identifiable locations. I am interested in better understanding how, in lieu of their “lack” of space, they are able to form community. Through semi-structured interviews and participant observation in the city of Portlan, Oregon, I hope to understand the ways in which these individuals relate to space and what they conceive as the possibilities or challenges to community through spatial interactions. Through this research, I hope to find the ways in which queer women represent “their” space and the relationship between its existence and the level of community.
