CS640b Mobilities: On the Move
This course explores the interdisciplinary area of research known as "mobilities studies." In the "new mobilities paradigm," which is the founding manifesto of mobilities studies, mobility is defined as the actual or potential flows of information, ideas, images, objects, and bodies. These are familiar flows previously interpreted by scholars in communication studies, cultural studies, geography, transport studies, and migration studies. So, what is "new" about the new mobilities paradigm and about mobilities studies? In particular, how does mobilities studies intersect with communication studies?
