Unbounding gentrification theory: multidimensional space, networks and relational approaches

Regional Studies, 2020, vol. 54, issue 2, 268-279

Abstract: This paper argues for an unbounding of approaches within gentrification theory with a renewed and broadened focus on the intertwined dynamics of uneven development and socio-spatial formation. This is carried out through a critical engagement with recent debates within gentrification theory along with concurrent debates over suburbanization, vertical urbanization, networked urbanism and relational approaches in the analysis of urban social space. The paper concludes by calling for a transgression of epistemological boundaries in order to understand the intertwining of uneven development and socio-spatial formation at different scales.
