Abstract

In this paper, I explore the multiple trajectories and relational politics from which Skagway, Alaska, has "become the new." I engage Skagway through a "language of movement." I tell "a story so far" about Skagway, Alaska, as a "place in motion." The paper unfolds through an ethno-historic narrative of the multiple lines of social and economic differentiation, processes of change, and numerous face-lifts Skagway has undergone since the Klondike Gold Rush on through to today's connectivity with the global cruise tourism industry.
