Mobilities Past and Present: Anthropological Approaches, 3 pts, GR5527
MOBILITIES PAST AND PRESENT
This course explores mobility – past and present – as an object of anthropological analysis, through mix of theoretical texts and ethnographic and archaeological case studies. In it, mobility is approached as an analytical object in two ways. First, it examines how mobility is structured in/through space, time, scale, as well as by landscapes, infrastructures, companion species, subjectivities, and ideologies. Second, this course engages with the ways in which mobility has structured anthropological understandings of societies and their history. As part of this, it interrogates the development of mobility studies and the arguments for novel mobilities in the contemporary world.
