Description

A treasury of rich insights into methods on the move that will inspire a new generation of mobility researchers in our burgeoning field. · Nick van Hear, Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), University of Oxford

This book offers a thought-provoking and timely revision of anthropological methods on mobility. The focus these authors assume, fruitfully pushes and fine-tunes methodological engagements with mobility and ethnographic practice. · Alison Macdonald, University College London

Methodologies of Mobility is a concrete inquiry into how specific research techniques, tightly linked to research questions, can address issues regarding mobility. This work makes a valuable contribution to social science research that concerns itself with how experiences of human movement and stasis are imbued with meaning. · Kiran C. Jayaram, York College, CUNY

Texte du rabat

Research into mobility is an exciting challenge for the social sciences that raises novel social, cultural, spatial and ethical questions. At the heart of these empirical and theoretical complexities lies the question of methodology: how can we best capture and understand a planet in flux? Methodologies of Mobility speaks beyond disciplinary boundaries to the methodological challenges and possibilities of engaging with a world on the move. With scholars continuing to face different forms and scales of mobility, this volume strategically traces innovative ways of designing, applying and reflecting on both established and cutting-edge methodologies of mobility.
