Challenges of mobility in the sedentary world
The book examines the under-explored phenomenon of location-independence, which blurs the boundaries between travel, migration, and dwelling. The topic is approached through a group of location-independent travellers, the so called 'global nomads' who illustrate the complex subjectivities and power relations associated with sustained mobility.
