Regimes of Mobility

In-depth research on the situated articulations between socioculturally inflected regimes of movement, mobility representations, and personal ideas about translocal mobilities is a fruitful way for analyzing the dynamic tension between on-going processes of mobility and fixity. In this talk, I start by sketching a conceptual framework to study (im)mobility and then draw upon historical as well as ethnographic examples to illustrate how regimes of mobility operate in the fields of education, work and leisure.
