Abstract

Working with autobiographical, non-fiction and literary texts from the long twentieth century, 'Mobility, Memory and the Lifecourse' investigates the foundational significance of mobility in interpersonal relationships of various kinds, and at different stages of the lifecourse. This includes parent-child relations, romantic involvements, marriage and other long-term partnerships, as well as the mobilities associated with bereavement and loss. Predicated upon the thesis that all relationships are produced -as well as defined, experienced and memorialised - through the routes and pathways we travel in order to connect with, separate from or share alongside, our significant others, the book focuses in particular on walking and transport mobilities while also recognising the significance of micro-mobilities within the home and other interior spaces.
