Timescapes of (im)mobility. Disruptions, waitings, and transits

Author: Giulia Storato, Francesco Della Puppa, Giuliana Sanò


This Special Issue investigates how refugees and asylum seekers deal with “timescapes of (im)mobility”. By bringing together different case studies, we reflect, on the one hand, on the different temporal regimes, “time traps” or “chronopolitics” that may condition refugees and asylum seekers’ daily routines and life experiences, and, on the other, on individual practices of routinisation, acceleration, stasis and waiting which can be read as tactics aimed at claiming time.
