The new mobilities paradigm (Sheller, Urry 2006) has become a powerful perspective in social theory. In particular, John Urry’s oeuvre has been very influential in the emergence of this new field and has had lasting impacts on many scholars, their thinking and researching on mobilities and modernities. This collection presents originally commissioned essays from leading scholars in the field who reflect on how Urry’s writing influenced their thinking and the course of their research and theorizing. The contributors represent several national contexts, including England, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada, Australia and the USA.
