Abstract

We explore in three case studies of mulitlocal protagonists, how protagonists experience and create mobility and immobility in their different living contexts. We understand multilocality on different levels, e.g. regarding housing, work, social relationships and ideas and show in our case studies, where people deliberately choose to be immobile, mobile or multilocal and which practices they employ to react to imposed mobility or imposed immobility. As analytical approach to examine the significance of mobility and immobility to individual actors, we introduce the concept of spatiality regimes and explore how activities, routines, implicit contracts, internalized practices and morals inter alia form these regimes. Consequently, we show how people follow or resist and create situations that disturb these regimes.
