Abstract

We are writing as geographers attempting to engage a sociological audience on what we see to be two important domains of contemporary spatial theory. Our goal is to create bridges of understanding between disciplines that, as the editors note in their introduction, have for too long developed on nonintersecting paths. There are of course exceptions to this general rule. Over the 20th century, one can certainly point to the sharing of concepts and methodologies found in the Chicago School of urban sociology and to the postwar conversations in subfields such as human ecology, demography, and community studies. More recently, there has been productive theoretical traffic between the fields in the study of structure and agency, particularly in its Giddensian form. Yet we agree with the editors that there is room for much greater productive interchange.
