This special issue explores the dynamic and double-sided nature of thinking place. The articles highlight, in varying degrees, the importance of ‘materiality’, ‘atmospheres’ and ‘spaces of belonging’ to the shaping of place and the social relations experienced via place.
Underneath our city arteries, the roadways, corridors and paths conceal a labyrinthine network of utilities and services. These invisible networks facilitate the complex delivery of services and communications essential to the smooth operation of a functioning, modern society.

Riaz Hassan passed away in Melbourne on June 8, 2022 after a long illness. His is a great loss to the Australian social sciences and to the social sciences in general. Riaz was a great scholar, a wonderful colleague, a good friend and an excellent teacher. He was the mentor of a whole generation of social scientists. His death is an especially great loss to me personally.
