Résumé

Family Geographies: The Spatiality of Families and Family Life is a contributed text that explores the role of geography in shaping the experience and practice of family life. Through diverse, stimulating, and current studies, Canadian and American authors apply geographical concepts of space, place, and distance to family relationships across the life coursefrom childbirth to eldercare. From the zoo, to family vehicles, to retirement communities, the authors draw on a wide range of contextual primary research to explore the everyday spaces that shape, and are in turn shaped by, family life. Integrating case studies, interviews, surveys, and personal accounts with theoretical analysis and existing literature, this text offers a unique contribution to an emerging research area and field of study. Primarily aimed at geography courses that focus on issues of gender, families, and space, the books interdisciplinary approach will also appeal to any family-focused social science course.
