Abstract

The journeys recounted here suggest that models of ‘rootless cosmopolitanism’ are part of a much larger and more complex story. While vulnerability and the weakening of social structures do occur as a part of global mobility, this vulnerability provides the conditions for the reconstruction of place-centred notions of power, structure and community. Further, the tracing of these journeys has described the centrality of global mobility for the production and contestation of wider-shared values that underpin Western globalism.
