This thesis examines Muslim female veiled bodies in public space and the various ways in which space and bodies intersect. Through a feminist appropriation of Henri Lefebvre’s spatiology, especially his analytical category of lived space, a theoretical framework is developed: a spatio-corporeal feminist perspective. Spatial theory and feminist theory are combined with fieldwork. The thesis argues that the veiled body is not other, rather, who is other in public space is not pre-given. The method employed is autoethnography, and by means of feminist phenomenology the researcher’s own embodiment in examined. Also, the thesis argues that the amalgamation of theoretical and evocative writing enriches the analysis and contributes to a situated feminist study.
