Mobilities

The Mobilities working group aims to produce a new line of inquiry within mobility analysis at UBC, addressing mediums and meanings of mobilities and immobilites.

Our approach includes a humanistic, interpretive, multilingual, culturally sensitive scholarship on multiple and intersecting mobilities. We draw on the humanities and social sciences to engage with the attention to mobility in cultural, historical, media, and literary studies of the circulation of humans, objects, ideas, and images.
