This general introduction presents the term that is the theme of this Special Section:
‘time-tricking’. Whilst initially mapping a few problems and perspectives that arise from
it, we focus particularly on the question of temporal agency. We claim that the concept
of time-tricking allows a reconsideration of temporal agency, and then set out how the
articles that make up this Special Section contribute to this reconsideration. We will see
that two versions of temporal agency are particularly salient in this endeavour: first, as a
response to crisis; second, as a form of maintenance work.
