This article reflects on the growing acceptance of intersectional criminology alongside emergent challenges of the contemporary moment. We consider how to retain intersectional commitments in areas of increasing importance, such as ubiquitous surveillance and technologies of policing. In discussing how we might examine and unpack the interlocking systems of oppression and their effects, this article addresses how criminologists might reflect more critically on their methodologies to not only ensure robust analysis, but also incorporate frameworks that better capture the technosocial entanglements emblematic of ongoing shifts in social control. After reviewing approaches for doing so, the article concludes with a reflection on implications for praxis.
