Gender and the City

For your final essayyou will analyze a topic of your choice related to Gender and the city. Before preparing your proposal, you will want to review the Final Paper Guidelines.  PROPOSAL GUIDELINESThe purpose of the proposal is to indicate to get you thinking about your topic, how you are going to approach it, and how you are going to relate it to course themes/theories.The point is not to tell us everything you know about the topic, but to provide a focused discussion of what you are seeking to investigate and the significance of your topic to course themes. See the proposal as your opportunity to get a head start on the paper and get feedback from the instructors and/or your TA.Your proposal must contain:The topic of your paper.Be very specific about the geographical and temporal scope of your topic. Remember that it can be historical or contemporary. This should be presented in the form of a short paragraph introducing your topic and its relevance to the course.Your research question.What specifically do you want to understand about your topic? One logical way to frame a research question is to present a problem, difficulty to be eliminated, or a question that exists in the scholarly literature or urban planning / policy. Usually a research problem avoids vague value statements. E.g. a question like is X policy or intervention good or bad?” is vague because we do not know how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is being assessed here. What counts as good or bad? A research question should also notbe answerable with a “yes” or “no.”A strong research problem will likely have some broader relevance beyond the specifics of your case. This does not mean that the answer to your question can necessarily be applied elsewhere, but that it is driven by a problem or conundrum that is not just specific to your case.E.g. rather than asking “Is privatization of water good or bad for women?”, you might ask “How has privatization influenced water access for poor women in X city or region? What are the reasons for this outcome?” and/or “What does this tell us about efforts to privatize water services more broadly?”Similarly, you might ask: “What are the opportunities and limitations of X urban social-movement strategy or X development intervention for advancing gender justice, and what can we learn from X about struggles for more just cities?”Or “How do X specific group of women or men negotiate belonging in X city?”A discussion of the significance of your topic/argument and how it relates to course themes.This is the “so what?” Part of the proposal. Why should we care about your research question? Does it relate to some pressing issue? Gap in our knowledge? Key debates in the literature or academia? Please be specific here about how your paper will engage theories, debates, and concepts from the course.Remember that you will need to cite at least 3 course readings in your final paper so think about your topic in relation to the readings we have assigned. In this section, we suggest you present a brief outline of the paper you plan to write, which will allow you to receive helpful feedback about the suitability of the scope and focus of your paperFORMATTING & ORGANIZATIONA title that clearly identifies the topic (no cover page required)12pt black font, Times New Roman or similar font1000 words (bibliography does not count towards word limit, but in-text citations do)Write out answers to questions 1-4 in paragraph format. You are welcome use bullet points in your paper outline or write it out in paragraph formYou are encouraged to use some sub-headings in your proposal, but they do not need to be the exact same as those described in the “Proposal Guidelines,” provided all components are included PRELIMINARY BIBLIOGRAPHYUse APA formatting for the reference list and author/date in-text citations. Here is a helpful guide: Must contain at least 8 sources, at least 4 of which are scholarly sources (peer-reviewed journal articles ) **Your proposal must contain references (with in-text citations) to your 8 preliminary sources** What types of sources are acceptable?We welcome a variety of source types, both scholarly sources and grey literature.How you use a source, of course, will depend on the source type. E.g. when citing something as “fact”, you will want to use a scholarly source or material from a reputable institution or news source. Definitely do not cite material from Wikipedia!When discussing narratives or representations of a place or your topic – i.e. how the public or powerful actors view, describes, or presents the people, places, and issues you are exploring – you can use a wider variety of sources. These might include, for example, YouTube videos, podcasts, promotional materials, websites, blogs, newspaper editorials, etc.SAMPLE TOPICSYou are not limited to these! Some of these are general suggestions and will need to be narrowed in scopeDifferent groups’ experiences of / practices of belonging and citizenship (e.g. immigrant communities; queer communities; youth)Violence against women (e.g. Missing and murdered Indigenous Women in Canada; domestic violence; rape culture)Gender analysis of a particular public service: water/sanitation, transport, health, educationGender analysis of architecture / built environmentWomen’s participation in the urban planning profession and/or a specific planning project or program ordevelopment intervention (e.g. women’s participation in water management)Gender-sensitive planning or gender mainstreaming in a given context (e.g. Vienna)Decolonial planning (Indigenous visions of urban planning and link to gender justice)Neoliberalism and its impacts on women in a given context (e.g. privatization of public services)A particular (feminist, trans, queer) urban social movement, e.g. Slut Walks, Popular feminist uprisings in Latin America (e.g. Mexico), Black Lives Matter, Black Trans Lives Matter, etc.Gender analysis of a social movement not specifically dedicated to gender / women’s interestsEveryday forms of resistance or the urban commons (e.g. community gardening, community kitchens or fridges)Claims to space and their relation to gender, masculinities, femininities, trans rights (graffiti / street art; housing occupations; homeless encampments; Pride movements)Gender implications of Urban renewal strategies, creation of new cities, or economic development plans (e.g. “Global Cities” projects or smart cities; mining)Gender analysis of an urban policy, plan, or ‘development intervention’ (e.g. microcredit)Feminization of labour in different contexts or sectors (e.g. maquiladora workers, migrant labour, domestic work, sex work, informal labour)Changing experiences / definitions of masculinity with economic change (e.g. shift to service-based economy / closing of factories, e.g. Oshawa)Gender implications of COVID in a given place / sector…..
