‘Land’, as Brenna Bhandar writes at the start of this issue’s keynote, ‘remains mired in a racial, colonial ideology of improvement.’ Notions of ownership and belonging, of construction and production, and all that make up the knotted web of layers and connotations associated with the word ‘land’ both express the colonial structures that underpin our understanding of the world and exert that coloniality back upon the world. This issue begins to pull at the threads that weave these brutal logics into earth, bringing to the fore stories from Mongolia, Palestine, South Africa, Vietnam, France, and Sweden that help us challenge our understanding of the ground we stand on.

The same structures that underpin the inequity in land relations must also be unbuilt in our pages and in our own editorial practice. As lockdowns were tentatively lifted and restrictions eased, we have been able to visit a few buildings and publish them in this issue. But rather than viewing this as a return to normal, to the comfort of old ways, we are committed to evolving – gradually, critically and continuously – the way we work and the traces we leave on the world.
