Sara Ahmed on bodies and space

So, yes, we can remember that some space are already occupied. They even take the shape of bodies that occupy them. Bodies also take the shape of the spaces they occupy and of the work they do. And yet sometimes we reach what is not expected. A space, however occupied, is taken up by somebody else. When bodies take up spaces they are not intended to inhabit, something other than the reproduction of the facts of the matter happens.
