Abstract

This article carries out the work of Jeff Hearn, emphasizing first “transnationalism” which can be defined simply as relating common areas of different cultures, and second “intersectionality”, placing them as a novelty from the tradition of making social sciences with its dissolution of the main dichotomies. Concepts are studied by several examples, in which both Hearn 's work, and their results were put forward as topics of discussion. Additionally and as a complementary the concept of “gex” –the intersection of gender and sex, has been studied under feminist criticism, as a revising of some of the distinctions based on traditional dichotomies. The importance of the situation of Syrian refugees in our country is a manifestation of the abondenment of such dualities. Our main aim is to highlight a new outlook of a future social sciences practice focusing mainly on immigration through transnationalism and intersectionality.
