Bounded Mobilities

Ethnographic Perspectives on Social Hierarchies and Global Inequalities

Edited by Miriam Gutekunst, Andreas Hackl, Sabina Leoncini, Julia S. Schwarz, and Irene Götz

Transcript-Verlag

Mobility is a byword 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 from the perspective of social inequality and global hierarchies.
Bounded Mobilities is an important and timely contribution to mobilities
