ABSTRACT

This chapter picks up on several interrelated critiques of conceptualizing space not only as an irrelevant, but also essentialist and absolute category within sociology. I connect critical sociologies of space and inequalities countering essentialist and Occidentalist worldviews. Drawing on critical and feminist border studies and geographies, spatial sociology, intersectionality, theories of interdependent inequalities, as well as post- and decolonial scholarship, I underscore the mutually enriching perspectives constituting the contours of an emerging interdisciplinary lens: entangled spaces.
