Abstract

One of the recurring themes in the discussion of globalisation is mobility. Money moves, products move, people move. Signs, symbols and representations also move. With new communications technologies, images can be flashed around the globe instantaneously, but with diverse forms of local reception. It could be argued that practices move, too. As people move, they take with them their learned ways of doing things: their work habits, their manners, their deportment, their gestures. In new places, they also learn new ways of doing things. When people move, bodies move. Mobility is an embodied experience.
