About this book

This book combines mobilities research with feminist and queer studies offering new perspectives on mobility justice. It foregrounds academic, activist, and artistic work revealing state-sponsored strategies for managing the mobility of people as mechanisms for aligning erotic and political desires with capitalist and nationalist interests.

Reviews

“Mobile Desires is an interesting effort to describe, examine and unsettle the structures and relations of power that mobilise and demobilise individuals and populations. … this reading will be – for all who undertake it – a strong stimulus to scrutinise mobility oppression and to create new ways to destabilise it, with uncertain results, but continuing attempts.” (Belén Rojas Silva, Angelaki, Vol. 22 (2), May, 2017)

“The breadth of the chapters provides an excellent opportunity for readers to be pushed beyond the boundaries that exist even in the fluid world of mobility studies … . The edited volume taken as a whole is inspiring. Those interested in mobility studies and in the friction between the mobility and desires of disparate groups of citizens will find that it challenges some of the familiar gendered and racialized critiques offering a more critical feminist/queer appraisal of mobility justice.” (Liesl Gambold, International Feminist Journal of Politics, Vol. 19 (1), February, 2017)
