Body Politics and Citizenship
Our contributors focus on the gendered meanings of the everyday
lived spaces – of homes and neighbourhoods in townships and peri-urban
peripheries of Cape Town and Lusaka. The individual authors reflect on
the creation of socio-spatial meanings and gendered agency generated in
the everyday negotiation of body politics and citizenship in these contexts.
Through grounded research and finely grained ethnography, the papers frame
body politics and citizenship as gendered, contingent and reproduced at
multiple scales, and built through the everyday use of material and cultural
resources. Peri-urban contexts are conceptualised as physical, material as
well as social places in which socio-political processes inform and shape
citizenship, negotiated in gendered and generationally specific ways.
