Lifestyle Mobilities: Intersections of Travel, Leisure and Migration

Many aspects affect mobility in today's world, including increased accessibility to transportation, transnational ties, growing ease of access to technology, information and knowledge, and changing socio-cultural values and outlooks. The crossroads between concepts of lifestyle and 'mobilities' are highlighted in this book. It is organized into four sections, with the first dealing with lifestyle mobility through aspects of bodily performance; the second section looks at the ways in which mobile methods may be used within social research; section three explores issues surrounding idea of belong, immobility and mobility; and the final section draws together a number of chapters that focus on identity within mobility and their complexities. Contributors draw upon ethnographic research.
