(Un)Settling Place: Diverse and Divergent Place-Making of People on the Move

Nanneke Winters

People who are "on the move," particularly migrants and the displaced, often inhabit places that are considered temporary, peripheral, and remote. (Un)Settling Place recentralizes these "out-of-the-way" places as key sites in the shaping of people's mobility and identities. Ranging from the surveillance and care that migrants experience to the re-creation of social ties and the re-claiming of space, this collection volume seeks to show how a critical approach to in-between place-making can challenge the idea of place as fixed, singular, or one-directional, offering new ways of understanding migrant trajectories.
