Welcome to the presentation lecture on the publication "Urbanism and Feminism" published within the activities of the Center for Urban Studies.
The texts collected in the book add a special perspective to the vision of the cityscape since they include opinions of researchers representing various areas of humanities. The use of methods of contemporary gender and urban studies enables unexpected angles of everyday routines of men and women within the public space. At the same time, it highlights the peculiarity of managing the space. It is about city planning and housing design, about the experience of urban life. On the other hand, it is about the representation of the experience in literature. The collection contains two conceptual "wings" to view the city and its spaces - "Feminist Urbanism" and "Urban Feminism". However, they share the same angle of the gender-sensitive lens.
The publication was made possible due to support of Heinrich Boell Foundation Kyiv Office Ukraine.
