What does a feminist urban theory look like for the twenty first century? This book puts knowledges of feminist urban scholars, feminist scholars of social reproduction, and other urban theorists into conversation to propose an approach to the urban that recognises social reproduction both as foundational to urban transformations and as a methodological entry-point for urban studies. Offers an approach feminist urban theory that remains intentionally cautious of universal uses of social reproduction theory, instead focusing analytical attention on historical contingency and social difference Eleven chapters that collectively address distinct elements of the contemporary crisis in social reproduction and the urban through the lenses of infrastructure and subjectivity formation as well as through feminist efforts to decolonize urban knowledge production Deepens understandings of how people shape and reshape the spatial forms of their everyday lives, furthering understandings of the 'infinite variety' of the urban Essential reading for academics, researchers and scholars within urban studies, human geography, gender and sexuality studies, and sociology

'Our time is fraught-global, intimate, differentiated-lived at different speeds with different horizons, but its insecurities and possibilities place social reproduction at its heart. This collection creatively and incisively reveals how centering social reproduction as theory and method reshapes the social ontology of the urban. Across sites and scales, an international group of authors offer compelling and original analyses of the material social practices and struggles that make social reproduction such a resonant frame to reimagine and remake urban social life so that it sings with possibility.' Cindi Katz, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Environmental Psychology at The City University of New York, Graduate Center, USA
