Abstract

abstract:

In this essay, we focus on how (im)mobility reflects wider socio-spatial and health inequalities in a highly segregated city: Santiago de Chile. Such immobility is relevant because it challenges common understandings of mobility in at least three ways: it reconfigures the relationship between mobility and health; it shows that inequality becomes visible not only when considering if a person can move, but also when examining the ability of a person to not move; and it shows how the immobility of some people is made possible by the hypermobility of others.
