disClosure: a journal of social theory
Issue 17: Migration, Displacement, and Mobility

Migration, Displacement, and Mobility, whether global or local, are making their effects felt as population shifts force governments, businesses, and citizens to adapt to the changing imperatives causing and wrought by the movement of humans. With the rise of migrant labor populations, the displacement of native populations, and ready access to cheap and fast transportation, humans are moving, relocating, and vacationing around the globe. Entailing every form of human phenomena, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have fruitfully engaged these issues. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: there remains much work to be done. To that end, we dedicate this issue of disClosure to questions like “how do we describe migration, displacement, and mobility,” “where do we find it,” “what are the implications of these phenomena,” and “what complicates our analyses?”
