This interdisciplinary course draws on political and historical sociology, political economy and cultural studies approaches to delineate the relationships between mobility and immobility. The approach is post-Marxist and intersectional, with a primary focus on class, gender, ethnicity and location.
The course is suitable for 2nd and 3rd year undergraduates. The first (spring) semester outlines ways of understanding infranational and international mobility in terms of class, gender, ethnicity and location. The second (autumn) semester outlines ways of understanding immobility and its relationship to mobilities.
