Aims
•        Critically analyze and interpret the complexities of the phenomena of mobility
•        Gain a broader understanding of the multiple economic, social, religious, cultural, and technological dimensions of mobility
•        Analyze, interpret and understand the politics of mobility that shape and are shaped by global relations of power, technologies, and distribution of social, economic and cultural capitals
 
Content
The course introduces students to theories and research on the relational dynamics of the movements of people, objects, images, information, and capitals. Although mobility is not exceptional to contemporary times, people and their material world are certainly moving in more dynamic and complex ways. The course examines how ‘im/mobility’ relates to (changing forms of) social relationships and new/other, sustainable or non-sustainable forms of citizenship. More than ever, we are witnessing an unprecedented convergence between physical movement of people and emerging forms of connectivity, urbanism, cosmopolitanisms, infrastructure, citizenship, and post colonialisms. These transformations raise new substantive questions for social sciences and humanities and suggest new theories and methodologies that address the relations of powers, discourses, and practices that determine mobility and immobility.
