Summary Scholars from various disciplines have used key concepts to grasp mobilities, but, as of yet, a working vocabulary of these has not been fully developed. Given this context and inspired in part by Raymond Williams' 'Keywords', this edited volume presents contributions that critically analyse mobility-related keywords: capital, cosmopolitanism, freedom, gender, immobility, infrastructure, motility, and regime.
