Gera, Krity ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-9341-3124, 2023, Conference or Workshop, (im)Mobile gendered identities: The relationship between mobility and identity at IASDR Congress 2023, Milano, Italy, 09-13 Oct 2023.

Abstract or Description:

Cities are places of contestation where individuals and groups act in specific ways to access resources and opportunities. Mobility enables individuals to access these different resources. This paper explores the impact of spatial mobility on changing identities of urban marginalized women (UMW) from the peri-urban areas of Delhi, India. It examines the relationship between mobilities and identities through relevant literature supported by a study extracted from an extensive ethnographic research on daily mobilities of UMW. Unstructured interviews and GPS path tracking are used as methods of data collection. The analysis of the acquired data presents mobility as an intertwined phenomenon with hidden links with socio-cultural elements and identity-making. Further, by focusing on the daily mobilities of UMW, this paper reflects upon the impact of gender (a result of the socio-cultural context) on identity transformation.
