Mobility is a keyword of late modernity that suggests an increasingly unrestrained and interconnected world of individual opportunities. However, as privileges enable some to live in a seemingly borderless world, others remain excluded and marginalized. Boundaries are created, modified and consolidated, particularly in times of hypermobility. Evidently, mobility is closely tied to immobility. This volume features ethnographic research that challenges the concept of mobility with regard to social inequalities and global hierarchies.
»An important and timely contribution to mobilities research. Regarding the sophisticated use of language and analysis of the cases, the volume is suitable for researchers or graduate students who have some experience with mobilities literature rather than under graduate students or beginners in the field.« Ilkay Tas Gursoy, Anatolia, 05.06.2017
