The essays in this volume present a thorough re-evaluation of the idea of place for the twenty-first century, linking across theoretical interests in space and spatialisation and in motion and mobility. aPlacinga becomes an active process that happens in different parts of the world, and there is work here from the countries of the United Kingdom, from Ireland, the USA, Australia and mainland Europe. Placing also happens in different contexts, in the Production of visual images, in translation, in performance and in poetry that is both atherea and aherea. The range of poets under consideration matches the breadth of the range of the Contributors. International in scope, and drawn from a variety of practices and processes, their combination in a single volume leads to unusual connections and new readings of their work.In the mornings this is an intense hesitation point before they dart across the road onto a neighbouring apropertya, and over the hump of the hill ... caution in terms of safety but also caution in terms of pattern. ... They travel in groups that are alive with crossmovement and cross-reference. Their song is acheerya and volatile. It is fast and slow. Their brilliant yellow-tailed tiny bodies erupt and hide themselves.
