Bio

Jen Jack Gieseking is an urban cultural geographer and feminist and queer theorist. He is engaged in research on co-productions of space and identity in digital and material environments, with a focus on sexual and gender identities. Jack’s work pays special attention to how such productions support or inhibit social, spatial, and economic justice, as well as how research can be made public and accessible to those who need it most. He is working on her second book project, A Queer New York: Geographies of Lesbians, Dykes, and Queer Women, 1983-2008. Jack’s first book is The People, Place, and Space Reader, co-edited with William Mangold, Cindi Katz, Setha Low, and Susan Saegert (Routledge, 2014). He has held fellowships with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation as German Chancellor Fellow; The Center for Place, Culture, and Politics; The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies; and the Woodrow Wilson Women’s Studies Dissertation Fellows Program.

While Jack uses both pronouns, he prefers he/him/his.
