Julia Verne: Living Translocality. Space, Culture and Economy in Contemporary Jukia Verne: TranslocalitySwahili Trade. Stuttgart (Erdkundliches Wissen 150) 2012. 262 S.

Mobility not only challenges the everyday lives of millions of people, it also challenges scientific understandings of society, culture and space.

Based on long-term mobile ethnographic research connecting Zanzibar, the Tanzanian mainland, Mombasa, Dubai and London, this volume takes up this challenge by exploring the translocal space emerging around contemporary Swahili trade. Examining translocality as a lived experience, the book succeeds in refining often overly abstract notions of mobile settings and relational space.
