World is a motion and social world is in state of flux. Fixed order and hegemony of sedentary states cannot fully compete with nomadic flexibility. Marginal becomes paradigm. Global capitalism creates elites and resistance against its own regime. Mobile subject benefit from the system others oppose it by being elusive. Nomadic modus viventi is more observable and applicable than ever before. Mobility is a win, attachment is passé.
I will divide theorizing on mobility into 4 subtopics:

Social World as a dynamics of Brownian Movements -- where I will provide introduction to a general characteristics of modern social dynamics in the contexts of people in the motion and transnationalism based on works of Pries and Bauman.

Complex framework of modern mobilities -- will be devoted to more detailed presentation of mobilities of different scale -- from everyday small mobilities to big mobilities of immigration with their meanings, politics and practices as proposed by Adley , Urry, Appadurai

Nomad as a thread and liberation -- in this section I will draw on Deleuze and Guattari notion of two forms of power and resistance illustrating the case with work of de Certeau to propose and discuss a concept of nomadic state of mind.

Startegic flexible citizenship and power positioning -- here I will refer to work of Aihwa Ong and her analysis of strategic spatial management of national and culture belonging in the framework of Chinese elites from Hong Kong.
