“Tangled Mobilities constitutes an original contribution both the-oretically and empirically to the bourgeoning (im)mobilities scholarship. Moreover, empirical cases in this volume provide a compelling argument that future research employing the framework of “tangled mobilities” should engage the emotional and temporal dimensions of mobility…The book will drive further scholarly discussions and pave the way for new research on yet understudied human mobilities.” • HAL Open Science, Advances in Southeast Asian Studies
The emotional, social, and economic challenges faced by migrants and their families are interconnected through complex decisions related to mobility. Tangled Mobilities examines the different crisscrossing and intersecting mobilities in the lives of Asian migrants, their family members across Asia and Europe, and the social spaces connecting these regions. In exploring how the migratory process unfolds in different stages of migrants’ lives, the chapters in this collected volume broaden perspectives on mobility, offering insight into the way places, affects, and personhood are shaped by and connected to it.
