Doctoral Students | LTDS

Queen Mary University of London Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarships (QMUL-LTDS)

Co-directed by Professors Engin Isin and Kimberley Hutchings, QMUL-LTDS involves 21 PhD research projects (2018-2023) concerned with how the world is being dynamically constituted by mobile people in active and novel ways and how this affects fundamental social and political institutions. Its aim is to generate theories, concepts, methods, and data that are necessary to understand mobility as a way of life – not as an exception but as an emerging norm. Current research demonstrates that developments in human mobility are interrelated with the ways in which they are studied, interpreted, documented, and managed. Thus, thinking about mobility as a way of life entails reflexivity about the processes of producing knowledge about mobile lives in an increasingly mobile world: how we study, manage, govern, and imagine it.
