Topology is a branch of mathematics that deals with objects that maintain their shape under deformation. Social scientists have been inspired by topology in trying to understand the nature of territorial changes introduced by globalization. However, the relationship between topology and territory is not straightforward, as the former deals primarily with mathematical properties of space while the latter deals primarily with the social aspects of space. This workshop aims to bring together scholars to engage these issues.
