7.5 ECTS credits
The course offers basic reviews of the challenges of the mobility-turn to social science theory and methods in general and human geography in particular. Mobilities are analysed from territorial/spatial, economic, political and sociocultural dimensions and the multifaceted and spatial expressions of (im)mobilities are studied in terms of class, gender and ethnicity exemplified by research on migration, tourism and job mobility. Privileged mobility forms are also included. The course provides deeper knowledge of increasing spatial, social, economic, cultural and political meanings at different geographical levels and treats critical concepts such as mobility, mobility capital and "mobile risk communities".
