Editorial handovers are migrations that signal and embody movement, transition, and transformation. To attend to, and indeed to salute this shift as I launch my editorship of Departures in Critical Qualitative Research—what I am framing as an editorial migration—I present to the readers the first of a curated double issue that focuses on migration and its attendant features, borders, and margins. I begin this introductory essay by enacting my own experiences of migration before leading the reader into essays by ten writers from distinct disciplines and fields who embraced, energetically and generously, my call to address the notion of migration in their own areas, contexts, subjects, and locations.
