Passing-by 'Ca va?' checks in clinic corridors

González-Martínez, Esther ; Bangerter, Adrian ; Lê Van, Kim

In: Semiotica, 2017, vol. 215, p. 1-42

We have conducted a video-based field study on work interactions between staff members in the corridors of a hospital outpatient clinic in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. In this paper, we examine a specific mobile interactional configuration: passing-by interactions in which staff members get involved as they walk following close and parallel trajectories going in opposite...

Editorial : When "expatriation" is a matter of family. Opportunities, barriers and intimacies in international mobility

Cangia, Flavia ; Zittoun, Tania

In: Migration Letters, 2018, vol. 15, no. 1, p. 1-16

This special issue aims at understanding “expatriate” mobility with a special focus on the role of family and intimacy, and brings together different case-studies, built through different theoretical perspectives. These allow approaching “expatriate” mobile families along two main lines: as part of the making of life trajectories, and as these are shaped by, and are shaping, professional...

Blurred Lines: Migration and Mobility in EU Law and Policy

Bauloz, Céline

(nccr on the move ; 4)

A plea for the ‘de-migranticization' of research on migration and integration

Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2016, p. 1

Migration and integration research has been institutionalized over the last few decades. However, an increasing number of voices has been calling for more reflexivity, criticizing the nation-state- and ethnicity-centred epistemology that often informs this discipline. Consistently with this line of reasoning, I argue that migration and integration research originates in a historically...

Dynamics of globalization: mobility, space and regulation

Söderström, Ola ; Klauser, Francisco ; Piguet, Etienne ; Crot, Laurence

In: Geographica Helvetica - Swiss Journal of Geography, 2012, vol. 67, no. 1-2, p. 43-54

Recent research at the Institute of Geography in Neu-châtel emphasises the pivotal status of mobility in the dynamics of globalization. Drawing on work in mobil-ity studies, the article presents a basic analytical frame-work suitable for studying the «mobile constitution of society». It argues more specifically that the relation-ship between mobility, space and regulation offers a worthwhile...
