Types and Dynamics of Gendered Space: A Case of Emirati Female Learners in a Single-Gender Context
Alzeer, Gergana
Gender and Education, v30 n3 p360-378 2018
This article is concerned with gendered spaces as they emerge from exploring Emirati female learners' spatiality in a single-gender context. By conducting ethnographic research and utilising Lefebvre's triad of perceived, conceived and lived space for the analysis and categorisation of students' spaces, three types of gendered spaces emerged: 'generally,' 'absolutely' and 'conditionally.' These spaces were grounded in the sociocultural context of the institute and its participants. The research also revealed the dynamics associated with such gendered spaces, including mobility restrictions and the agency of the female learners through the ways these females contested gender segregation practices, negotiating and attempting to establish new positions of power within cultural and institutional constraints.
