This chapter seeks to challenge the obsession of many scholars with the hyphenated, short-hand concepts of time-space and space-time. While acknowledging that senses of spatiality and temporality are important to our apprehensions of the world, I question why they are frequently positioned as the primordial, foundational, a priori qualities and measures for thinking about position, context, and the event. The chapter starts by tracing how space and time have increasingly been thought together in (human) geography since the late 1960s, before examining how certain strands of processual and post-structuralist thinking might provide an alternative approach for thinking about the unfolding of events. The paper suggests that the unfolding of specific events may result in sensibilities and ontologies characterised by an apprehension of affect, movement, rhythm, force, and energy, as much as time or space. In the final section I explore how, in many situations and while engaging in many practices, we appear to possess an openness to a register we might call movement-space.
