With(Out) Trace: Inter-Disciplinary Investigations into Time, Space and the Body, unpacks many of the issues that surround the idea of trace: what we intentionally, an unintentionally, leave behind as well as how trace can help us to move forward. In particular this volume looks at how an inter-disciplinary approach can suggest new ways of seeing and, subsequently, exploring interconnections between time, space and the body. Within this work, the authors accomplish more than tracing a theme, a theory, or discipline within the study of time, space and the body; the collection does not simply trace past debates about the relationship between the three. Indeed the interdisciplinarity of this collection suggests other ways of seeing the field and of tracing new paths through it. Exploring those new perspectives and new paths enrich future thinking about the interconnections between time, space and the body.
