This introduction offers a brief and poetic introduction to historical uses of liminality. It also explains how authors in this special issue were tasked with thinking of liminalities as multiplicities or twisted liminalities. This means liminalities is not simply a rite-of-passage, but crosses time-spaces and can be a site of resistance within the contemporary moment. Also, liminalities can be an ontological position that challenges entrenched modes of conducting research. We encouraged authors to consider the concept of liminalities within the field of critical qualitative inquiry.
