Communications and Mobility is a unique, interdisciplinary look at mobility, territory, communication, and transport in the 21st century with extended case studies of three icons of this era: the mobile phone, the migrant, and the container box. -Urges scholars in media and communication to return to broader conceptions of the field that include mobility of all kinds—information, people, and commodities -Embraces perspectives from media studies, science and technology studies, sociology, media anthropology, and cultural geography -Discusses ideas of virtual and embodied mobility, network geographies, de-territorialization, sedentarism, nomadology, connectivity, containment, and exclusion -Integrates the often-neglected transport studies into contemporary communication studies and theories of globalization
