As Mimi Sheller and John Urry (2004: 8) write, in the context of tourism: ‘many “hosts” are increasingly also from elsewhere’, are also on the move, passing through, guests enacting host-ness. Hospitality – as a relationship marked by poles of host-ness and guest-ness, and by the obligations and rewards that this bipolarity brings – is thus itself destabilized as we enter an increasingly mobile age, a society of mobilities (Sheller and Urry 2006; Urry 2000). Of course, this new vector of mobility is unevenly developed and inequitably shared, such that some groups experience only further immobility – especially, perhaps, in terms of the ability of cross borders, to make a new home in another place.
