(Im)Mobility and Health in Santiago de Chile
Abstract / Resumen / Resumo
In this essay, we focus on how (im)mobility reflects wider socio-spatial and health inequalities in a highly unequal 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 possibility for a person not to move; and it shows how the immobility of some people is made possible by the hypermobility of others.
