Note Chapter 1: Mobility and history: framing the argument -- Chapter 2: Migration and mobility through the lens of history -- Chapter 3: History through the lens of mobilities studies -- Chapter 4: Mobility in history through the lens of transport -- Chapter 5: History and mobility through a microscope -- Chapter 6: Mobility and history - towards an integrated research and teaching agenda
This book provides an innovative perspective on migration, mobility and transport. Using concepts drawn from migration history, mobilities studies and transport history it makes the case for greater integration of these disciplines. The approach is historical, demonstrating how past processes of travel and population movement have evolved, examining the continuities and changes that have occurred, and arguing that many of the concepts used in mobilities studies today are equally relevant to the past. The three central chapters view past population movements through, respectively, the lenses of migration history, mobilities studies and transport. Two further chapters demonstrate the diversity of mobility experiences and the opportunities and difficulties of applying this approach in teaching and research. Extensive case study material from around the world is used, including personal diaries, which vividly recreate the everyday experiences of past mobilities. Population movement has never been of more importance globally: this book demonstrates how knowledge of past mobility experiences can inform our understanding of the present
