Travel Light: Apprehending Being on the Move

- How are we to think of tourism in relation to movement and its prohibition?

- How has the West’s obsession with newer, more advanced technologies of movement impacted our conceptions of place and possibility?

- How has “movement” as a thematic, metaphor, and/or motif changed in literature throughout its history?

- How can Disability Studies aid in the re-definition of movement through nonableist frameworks?
