Abstract

This article introduces this special issue on liminal hotspots. A liminal hotspot is an occasion during which people feel they are caught suspended in the circumstances of a transition that has become permanent. The liminal experiences of ambiguity, uncertainty, and paradox that are characteristically at play in transitional circumstances acquire an enduring quality that can be glossed as a “hotspot.” The origins of the concept are described followed by an overview of the contributions to this special issue.
