An Autoethnography of Fuencarral 43: Women in Masculine Public Space

Liz M. Rush


In An Autoethnography of Fuencarral 43, semiotic analysis and feminist urban geography critiques are balanced with the use of autoethnography and personal narrative to present a study of women in public space. Through a feminist lens, a small plaza in the heart of Madrid, Spain is presented as a case representing the inequalities women experience through both architecture and the spatial ideology of urban geography, as well as through social conditions such as advertising, violence, and the privatization of public space. In addition to personal narrative, journaling and field notes are used as data sources along with participant observation and interviewing.
