The margin, how it is lived, experienced, navigated, politicised, framed, used, theorised and represented forms the basis of much geographical scholarship on difference, age, gender, race, sexuality and more. Margins are spatial, they have a physical geography; they are habitually demarcated by lines, boundaries and infrastructures. Radical geographers can push, extend and open up conceptualisations of the margin, to recognise the multiple marginalities that intersect in everyday life, across spatial terrains and through time. It is critical to acknowledge the ways in which experiences of the margin can be mobile and manifest in multiple spaces at multiple times. Radical geographers need to be open to other interpretations of the margin, broader than a bipolar demarcation between core and periphery. Radical geographers should be sensitive to multiple margins, operating at different scales, at different times, in different human and non‐human bodies, intersecting across space and time.
