Abstract

‘Transregionalism’ joins an expanding thesaurus entry alongside terms such as ‘translocal’, ‘transnational’, ‘transworld’, ‘transplanetary’, ‘transscalar’, ‘globalization’, ‘world society’, and more. All of these words – most of them coined recently – convey in their various ways a sense of the historical contingency and conceptual limitations of modern territorialist constructions of social space. Ontological and methodological territorialism assumes that social geography can be mapped wholly and solely in terms of bounded parcels of land (e.g. districts, countries, and regions). In contrast, post-modern reconstructions such as transregionalism suggest that social relations involve more complex spatial assemblages.
