Mobility Justice Author Talk
19 May, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:45 pm PDT
Who moves freely? Who gets stopped? In Mobility Justice, from Verso Books, Mimi Sheller traces how the regimes of power that govern movement produce inequality at all levels. On a local level in the circulation of people, resources, and information. On an urban scale, with questions of public transport and “the right to the city.” On the planetary level, where tourists and elites are able to roam freely, while migrants and those most in need are imprisoned at the borders, sent back to the ground zeros of violence and climate disaster they tried to flee. The fight for mobility justice connects body, street, city, nation, and planet, and can forge new links among social movements. Check out a new way of framing the everyday.
