Special issue title: Mattering seductions in undisciplined qualitative inquiry
Returning is a paradox; even more so as an orientation to(wards) the seductive forces that we return (to) throughout this special Issue. One can return and never return all at once. Return is like a wave; it turns itself – returns that never return to how it was in the beginning. There is no clearly identifiable beginning; there is no end or ending. This introduction desires to do exactly that: to fold our academic-writing-matter in the mess and mass of such academic workings. Theory and theoretical contexts seduce us and we would like to share some forces of that seduction with you, our readers. And yet! We sit in this writing with the (im)possibilities in such desires for sharing. Seduction might not communicate itself, might not show its character and elements, and it might not even produce something tangible and sharable. In such absence, will seduction be at work then? Will diffractive forces of seduction be muted and decapitated? Might the seduced and seductive body of academic-writing-matter matter in its absence? This introduction will … [hmmm! This impulse to identify a neat start, an originary point, operates as a such a strong force]
