Abstract

The Handbook of Displacement will offer an interdisciplinary intervention into studies of displacement in the Global North and Global South. While the study of displacement is usually framed in terms of refugees and those displaced by war, conflict or environmental disaster, the handbook questions the limits of official definitions of displacement and reveals the diverse circumstances in which people can be forced into mobility or immobility in and over different space/times. It does so through a wide-ranging collection of conceptual, methodological and empirical chapters from scholars across the humanities and social sciences, as well as practitioners and activists who are involved in interpreting, subverting, and resisting displacement across the world.
