About this product
- DescriptionMoving Matters is a richly nuanced portrait of the serial migrant: a person who has lived in several countries, calling each one at some point home. The stories told here are both extraordinary and increasingly common. Serial migrants rarely travel freely-they must negotiate a world of territorial borders and legal restrictions-yet as they move from one country to ather, they can use border-crossings as moments of self-clarification. They often become masters of settlement as they turn each country into a life chapter. Susan Ossman follows this diverse and growing population t only to understand how paths of serial movement produce certain ways of life, but also to illuminate an ongoing tension between global fluidity and the power of nation-states. Ultimately, her lyrical reflection on migration and social diversity offers an illustration of how taking mobility as a starting point fundamentally alters our understanding of subjectivity, politics, and social life.
