susan e. gray and gayle gullett Dear Readers, The works assembled here continue a conversation on migration and place, colonization and global capitalism that we have pursued through a series of special issues since assuming the editorship of Frontiers in 2003. They conjure with the meaning of scale in the creation of place from undifferentiated space, as did the contributions to our inaugural issue on gender and place (25:2). They juxtapose "physical relocations with migrations of the imagination," as we saw in our special issue on gender and migration (27:2). And, by focusing on intimate household relations as the nexus of unequal relations of power under colonization and postcolonial global capitalism, they reach back to our special double issue on domestic colonization (28:12). The present issue offers something more, however, than the unspooling and rewinding of familiar thematic threads. It is truly a global issue; the contributors take us literally around the world, and their works crisscross continents and oceans to speak to one another in ways that both resonate with the contents of previous issues and surprise us. We begin in Mexico on the Yucatán Peninsula to explore the effect of Cancún as a global tourist destination,
