STILLNESS

Stillness in a Mobile World D.Bissell & G.Fuller (eds) for International Library of Sociology Series, London, Routledge, 2010

This collection intervenes in debates around mobility, life, animation and thought by foregrounding the radically ambiguous concept of ‘stillness’ as a crucial site for critical interrogation. Stillness provides both a challenge and an invitation to consider how the dynamics of passivity, suspension and stasis are integral to our understanding of life on the move.
