Bibliography

URBAN CULTURES AND COMMUNITIES IN THE FRAME OF GENDER

This bibliography is based on an extensive research in different German and English library catalogs via various research cycles and selection procedures.
Background of this research is the increase of the importance of urban life as already now over 50% of the world’s population lives in urban spaces and agglomerations (although urban growth and processes of urban shrinking are distributed unequally).
This importance of urban life is reflected in diverse discourses in Cultural Studies as well as in design, architecture and urban planning. In this context questions of gender, an approach from an intersectional perspective – the interconnection of different societal categories like gender, race, class, sexual identity, age e.a. – as well as other urban life styles beyond the traditional nuclear family are still neglected.
The idea of this research and bibliography is to close this gap of reception and to point to scientific research, investigations and theoretical explanations already being published.
This bibliography is structured in a complex of topics. Each topic is divided in a historical section, a section with theoretical explanations, a section concerning urban planning and a more specific section of publications structured along continents and countries. As most of the publications are in English, the bibliography is bilingual.
