This mini-symposium brings together Birkbeck scholars to share insights into the utility of the concept of mobility for transnational themes of race, gender, class and intimate labour (particularly but not exclusively in relation to service and care work). In short papers and a roundtable discussion, participants will consider questions for scholars of intimate labour and care work around transnational mobilities and containment of bodies, technologies and ideas, from a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.
