In the very first issue of Transfers, we invited our readers to “Hop On the Bus,”
to engage in an adventure to rethink mobility, and to reformulate and construe
what we called new mobility studies (NMS), an envisaged amalgam of
historical, humanities, and social science approaches to modern and postmodern
mobilities. Now, seven volumes and seven years (and twenty-one issues
with give or take two hundred main articles and three hundred reviews)
later, at a moment when I consider my time to lead this fascinating project
as coming to an end, we can look back, I venture to conclude, on a period in
which this project stabilized into a transdisciplinary, transnational program
of research with contributions from academic and nonacademic writers from
across the globe.
