Migration and (Im)Mobility : Biographical Experiences of Polish Migrants in Germany and Canada Paperback / softback

Part of the Culture and Social Practice series

Description

In her endeavour to overcome the established methodological, conceptual, and empirical dualism of mobility and migration, Anna Xymena Wieczorek develops a "mobilities perspective" by combining migration studies theories with approaches from mobility studies.

With the help of rich empirical data gathered among young adults of Polish heritage in Germany and Canada, Wieczorek conceptualizes three patterns of (im)mobility that illustrate the diversity of immigrants' geographical movements after their initial migration.

She thus reveals the different social configurations promoting or hindering the development, maintenance, or shifting of each pattern in migrants' biographical trajectories.
