Abstract:

With a view to rethink positionality, social identity, as well as real, imagined, and social boundaries the author draws on some of the contributions of queer theory. It is argued that elements of the debate within queer theory echo concerns in geography about the increasing permeability of real and imagined borders. This paper briefly summarises some of the recent debates in queer theory and then reveals how these ideas can inform a geographical imagination. The paper concludes by arguing that the debate about borders in queer theory can be used to inform both geographical knowledge and teaching about geography.
