Patrick Dunae

Prize for Best article on the history of Sexuality


Patrick Dunae, Geographies of Sexual Commerce and the Production of Prostitutional Space: Victoria, British Columbia, 1860-1914”. Journal of the Canadian Historical Association 19, 1(2008).

The selection committee was particularly impressed by how Dunae deftly contextualized his rich historical study of prostitution in Victoria within the international literature on the ‘spatial turn,’ most evident in Dunae’s use of Henri Lefebvre’s work on the ‘production of space.’ In this way, Dunae’s article extends in a highly productive fashion the commitment to empirical research and theoretical sophistication that have become a hallmark of the historiography of sexuality in Canada.
