This chapter provides a reflection on the book collection. The diversity of approaches to understanding the landscapes and spatialities of hate in the chapters are examined, highlighting the different sub-disciplinary perspectives and variety of spatial and temporal contexts. The chapter then identifies three key themes for the ongoing study of hate: the potential of an intersectional approach to appreciate the complexity, multi-layered and intricate nature of hate experienced by individuals; considering the relational nature of hate and hate crime, which can help to understand the diverse motivations of discriminatory conduct, and the social groups, individuals, places and events, where hate emerges; and providing the space and time to consider the presence and importance of the emotional and affective significance of hate. The chapter concludes by considering the ethical and methodological challenges presented when being attentive to the intersectional, relational, and emotional aspects of hate.
