“Time is man. Space is woman.” Blake’s verse offers an interesting angle for the investigation of the constructed realm of space and womanhood as their shifting borders interrelate or conflate (expansion vs containment, public vs private…). It also provides a context to discuss space, as the latter is constructed through gendered metaphors (matrix, flux…), and gender as it runs through all aspects of this Conference.
