The past few decades have seen a proliferation of academic research on the histories and historical geographies of empire, and more recently the histories and historical geographies of mobility. Important research on imperial networks, slavery, global trade, Black Atlantic cultures, travel writing, imperial air routes, global migration patterns and much more has revealed some of the ways in which mobility and empire are entwined, as have academic studies of the mobility practices, technologies and infrastructures underpinning imperial ambitions and strategies of governance. Despite obvious overlaps, academic studies of mobility and empire frequently demonstrate quite different conceptual and disciplinary underpinnings, and few scholars have examined their (potential) conceptual cross-fertilisation.
