A major concern of the 20th and 21st centuries has been the migration of people across and within borders. Dr Parvati Raghuram has contributed to debates in this interdisciplinary field including work on the drivers of migration, multiculturalism and diversity, care workers and transnational professionals, and intercultural competencies. This incorporates research on mobilities, that is the means by which people move and interact, in and between cities and countries, destabilising and co-constituting subjectivities and cultural practices. A new research project of this research strand is titled Gender, skilled migration and IT: A comparative study of India and the UK. Dr George Revill’s work on railways and transport infrastructure is another example of work in this area, informed by phenomenological and sociotechnical approaches to mobility.
