I explore the rhythm mobility of young Eastern Europeans in Spain
What is it about?
I highlights the issue of rhythmic change in temporary mobility, uncovering ‘arrhythmic’ mobility, ; ‘polyrhythmic’ mobility, practised by people looking to study and/or work and expressed through uncertainty on the one hand and the possibility of establishing a certain rhythm in their lives on the other; and ‘eurhythmic’ mobility, used by those with a stable professional status in one of the EU countries.
Why is it important?
Following Lefebvre's rhythmanalysis approach, and drawing on 60 in‐depth qualitative interviews, I investigates how rhythms are linked to youth mobility and how different interplays of rhythms are connected and disconnected in multiple ways. I argue that both the EU socio‐economic context and the personal and professional life‐course circumstances of young Eastern Europeans who practice mobility create different, uneven rhythms that influence their everyday lives and their perceptions of mobility.
