The authors place the field of mobilities research in conversation with feminist and queer studies to offer new ways of thinking about mobility justice. While much mobility scholarship seeks to transform the structures that unevenly distribute mobility across populations, mobilities research rarely engages theories of affect and embodiment and thus misses the opportunity to consider the mobility of desires and desiring subjects. In contrast, this edited collection foregrounds academic, activist, and artistic work that unpacks the ways in which state-sponsored strategies for managing the physical movement of people as mechanisms for aligning erotic and political desires with capitalist and nationalist interests. Through an examination of immigration and asylum regimes, international education exchanges, global tourism industries, and local policing practices, this volume advances a set of critical practices designed to understand and, ideally, unsettle the systems of power allocating mobility rights and the capacity to control where, when, and how one's body moves.

Review:

“Mobile Desires is an interesting effort to describe, examine and unsettle the structures and relations of power that mobilise and demobilise individuals and populations. ... this reading will be – for all who undertake it – a strong stimulus to scrutinise mobility oppression and to create new ways to destabilise it, with uncertain results, but continuing attempts.” (Belén Rojas Silva, Angelaki, Vol. 22 (2), May, 2017)

“The breadth of the chapters provides an excellent opportunity for readers to be pushed beyond the boundaries that exist even in the fluid world of mobility studies ... . The edited volume taken as a whole is inspiring. Those interested in mobility studies and in the friction between the mobility and desires of disparate groups of citizens will find that it challenges some of the familiar gendered and racialized critiques offering a more critical feminist/queer appraisal of mobility justice.” (Liesl Gambold, International Feminist Journal of Politics, Vol. 19 (1), February, 2017)
