Intimate Mobilities : Sexual Economies, Marriage and Migration in a Disparate World Hardback
Edited by Christian Groes, Nadine T. Fernandez
Part of the Worlds in Motion series
As globalization and transnational encounters intensify, people's mobility is increasingly conditioned by intimacy, ranging from love, desire, and sexual liaisons to broader family, kinship and conjugal matters.
This book explores the entanglement of mobility and intimacy in various configurations throughout the world.
It argues that rather than being distinct and unrelated phenomena, intimacy-related mobilities constitute variations of cross-border movements shaped by and deeply entwined with issues of gender, kinship, race and sexuality, as well as local and global powers and border restrictions in a disparate world.
