Second, these essays function on a meta-discursive level to probe the figurative entre-deux that the discourse and rhetoric of liminality finds itself positioned in within contemporary academic writing. The contributors engage with the issues of how far it is possible to advance discussions on liminality beyond the particular contexts of their own personal work and highlight variously the very in-between-ness of attempting to make the praxis of liminality less indeterminate. Thus, the collection as a whole addresses the self-referential limitations of liminality as a dialogic approach, illustrating the ways in which liminality’s very in-between-ness goes some way towards enabling the academic to deconstruct certain bounded structures as well as towards insulating or inoculating her/him from the responsibilities of actually conceptualising or independently theorising the entre-deux.
