“Being Anchored to Be Agile”: A Call for Interdisciplinarity in Mobility Research
Friday 17 July 2020
Following the publication on the Mobile Lives Forum website of the roundtable discussion “Spatial Mobilities, the Origins of a Field,” Professor Dominique Joye, an expert on social-sciences research methodologies, further discusses the issue of interdisciplinarity in current research. He reminds us both of the virtues of hybridization for scientific research and the importance of disciplinary roots to take advantage of it. Behind this apparent paradox, which can be summed up by the phrase “being anchored to be agile,” lies perhaps one of the keys for developing research in a “boundary” field such as mobility.
