Title: English on the Move
Subtitle: Mobilities in Literature and Language
Edited By: Annette Kern-Stähler
David Britain
URL: http://www.narr-shop.de/index.php/english-on-the-move.html
Series Title: Swiss Papers in English Language and Literature (SPELL), Band 27
Description:

“All the world seems to be on the move.” So began Sheller and Urry’s declaration of a ‘new mobilities paradigm’, a critique of what they called the sedentarism of contemporary social theory. In linguistic, literary and cultural studies, mobility and movement have been receiving increasing critical attention for at least two decades. English on the Move: Mobilities in Literature and Language seeks to harness some of this critique to explore how mobilities, both mundane and dramatic, are represented, narrated, performed and negotiated in literature and discourse, as well as the repercussions and consequences of mobility on language and dialect.
