Abstract

In this chapter, I (re)imagine the human and more-than-human entanglements that are forged in the aftermath of two different wind and stormy events. Windy storm happenings continually shift and shape the world over time and space. Thinking of human mobility as happening with an earth that is itself on the move, can offer insights into how human movement is always in relation to and becoming part of the places we move through. I draw attention to the liveliness of place using Massey’s notion of ‘place and landscape as events, as happenings’ and Yusoff’s invitation to think of the inhuman forces that shape us across time, space and matter. Stormy and windy events offer an opening to think with dramatic shifts in earth and atmosphere to reveal the ways that humans engage in an ongoing negotiation with the elements; not just as a wild bodily and affective dance with weather, but a co-mingling of agency between human and inhuman forces. The narratives presented here reveal how storms and deep earthly movements from a distant past shape and exceed the ‘here and now’ and offer an imagining of being moved in a moving world.
