This chapter presents reflections on the author’ s career to date, as a geographer, working across sociological disciplines. The author explores the various insights she has gleaned from sociology, highlighting its influence on First and Second degree as well as her motivations for starting an academic career as a social researcher. Questions of disciplinary identity and the challenges created through a sense of (un)belonging are also brought into focus. The aim of the chapter is to show how crossing boundaries between disciplines reinvents as well as sustains disciplinary identity, and proves a useful gateway through which to open up connections to new spaces and working environments.

Keywords:   sociology, geography, boundary crossing, career, social research
