Mobilities, Knowledge, and Social Justice


    The mobility of people, objects, information, ideas, services, and capital has reached levels unprecedented in human history. Such forms of mobility are manifested in continued advances in communication and transportation capacities, in the growing use of digital and biometric technologies, in the movements of Indigenous, migrant, and women's groups, and in the expansion of global capitalism into remote parts of the world. Mobilities, Knowledge, and Social Justice demonstrates how knowledge is mobilized and how people shape, and are shaped by, matters of mobility. Richly detailed and illuminating essays reveal the ways in which issues of mobility are at the centre of debates, ranging from practices of belonging to war and border security measures, from gender, race, and class matters to governance and international trade, and from citizenship and immigration policies to human rights. Contributors analyze how particular forms of mobility generate specific types of knowledge and give rise to claims for social justice. This collection reconsiders mobility as a key term in the social sciences and humanities by delineating new ways of understanding how mobility informs and shapes lives as well as social, cultural, and political relations within, across, and beyond states. Contributors include Rob Aitken Alberta, Tanya Basok Windsor, Janine Brodie Alberta, William Coleman Waterloo, Ronjon Paul Datta Alberta, Karl Froschauer Simon Fraser, Daniel Gorman Waterloo, Amanda Grzyb Western, Suzan Ilcan Waterloo, Eleonore Kofman Middlesex, Anita Lacey Auckland, Theresa McCarthy Buffalo, Daniel J. Pare Ottawa, Nicola Piper Sydney, Parvati Raghuram Open, Kim Rygiel Wilfrid Laurier, Leslie Regan Shade Toronto, Sandra Smeltzer Western , Daiva Stasiulis Carleton, Myra Tawfik Windsor, and Lloyd Wong Calgary.
