Mobilities of Knowledge examines how the geographical mobility of people and im material things has impacted epistemic systems of knowledge in different historical and geographical contexts. It encourages the multidisciplinary study of Asia and initiates programmes that engage Asian and other international partners.

Mobilities Of Knowledge. The state and corporate dimensions of contemporary policy mobilities.
We have been offering quality mobility products and wheelchair accessible vehicles for over years. Cities and regions meet global economic actors and forces, knowledge production and politics in relation to piracy in the early-eighteenth century, the corresponding distance band must be chosen in the application and report forms, whatever your profile, beer and general mayhem. The results raise questions about the relationship between the different types of mobility that participants in HCPs predominantly professional volunteers engage in, particularly the duration and repeated quality of stays, and knowledge transfer processes.
In this paper, I begin to close some of these gaps and advance our understanding of the relationship between different forms of mobility and knowledge transfer processes, in the hopes that this will build the evidence base supporting the contribution of North—South HCPs to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals 2.

Jenne-Jeno is one city among what seems to have been a group of city clusters surrounding both flanks of the Niger River bend from Segu on the western stretch to Gao on the eastern.
What is truly unique about these towns and cities is, as the archaeological work of the McIntoshes have demonstrated, that they were very well-organised, populous city states with a highly developed and elaborate religious life, complete with what appears to be a cosmological understanding, therefore very likely incorporating a priesthood and yet showing little evidence of a monarchy or a priestly class as such. In other words, Jenne-Jeno, as with other cities in this network, operated on a structurally shallow social hierarchy.
Even though Jenne-Jeno artwork evidences institutions such as an armed military on horseback a cavalry fig. These were cities closer to the merchant-governed cities of the Mediterranean than royal cities with deep and divided social hierarchies, which in a monarchical system would be signalled, for instance, by a highly differentiated architecture. One of the best-known such narratives, in which the territory is in the process of reinscription as Muslim, is the epic story of Sundiata or Sunjara , later the first Muslim ruler of the state of Mali.
Enigmatic Mobilities / Historical Mobilities
His movements are an indication of the fabulous mobilities in this pre-Islamic space of dense networks and routes. We should note that the complex of ideas that produced the ancient cluster of cities in the inland lake district is not necessarily unique or unprecedented on the African continent, even if we exclude Egyptian and Sudanese Nile valleys. The confluence of the Niger and Benue rivers just outside Lokoja, Nigeria, serves as an example. Located in this arc was the enigmatic artwork of Nok.
About this book
Early Nok art, the large majority being terracotta, dates back to circa BCE, making some of its sculpture coterminous with New Kingdom Egypt. Significantly, if we think of the confluence as a Y-shape producing three sectors, then the confluence has Nok in its northern sector, and two impressive but later art assemblies in the two other sectors, which are also about miles radial from Lokoja. Its south-eastern sector gave rise to the art known as Igbo Ukwu, 14 which produced the most sophisticated art traditions in bronze and brass a few hundred years after terminal Nok and later contributed to the royal art in brass of the imperial state of Benin.
The third sector, Ile-Ife, also known as Ife, 15 but in fact straddling both Ife and the town of Owo a good distance away in the direction of the city of Benin, was in some way a locally reinvented and perhaps technically perfected progression from the first two sectors Nok and its terracottas, Igbo Ukwu and its bronzes , following the second in a more compressed historical cycle. The very possibility of this hypothetical movement of a complex of ideas must — as in the case of the inland Niger River lake district — involve those forms of cultural transmission that are still inscrutable to us, enabling new mobilities whose fullness we scarcely grasp.
The comparatively limited archaeological resources that have been deployed in the region does not help matters, although scholars, including the McIntoshes, have produced modest but significant information that supports the hypothesis. Fula cosmologies and the delightfully poetic oral texts in which they were transmitted appear to have been derived from the once unique and progressively transcontinental nomadisms of the Fulani, and the invisibly spatio-architectural sense that such an existence required.
These mobilities and forms of transmission were wonderfully complicated in the s by Jean-Loup Amselle, who dissolved the idea that the Fula, and by implication any African ethnicity, had the kind of stability that we in our comparatively immobile thinking erroneously credit them with. Does this not mean that becoming Fula — by which I mean in the absence of violence which could sometimes seize the dynamic , as would once also have been the case in becoming Yoruba or Hausa or Zulu or Asante — involved the mobility of ideas by converting willing bodies into new subjects claiming new orientations?
The trajectories, topologies and ancillary architectures of such enigmatic movement, the ones that in this way nevertheless supported long-distance trade, for instance, are hardly yet understood even by historians of Africa. I have suggested that we can see this in a phenomenon like knowledge transmission, both spatial and generational, and that we can claim that this subtended the variety of African settlement — urbanism, architecture, and art universes of Africa — in all its non-utopian diversity.
So although mobilities as an intellectual strategy, an epistemological paradigm, tend to be deployed in relation to the contemporary world, we should be as interested in what I might describe as historical mobilities, the physical and conceptual generations of cultural energy that over time constructed the cultural and social universes of the vast continent of Africa, and which we are called to comprehend — for the simple reason that this universe is still among the least understood of all worlds.
The problem, however, is that the origins of such studies are in nothing more robust than eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European prejudice, as well as twentieth-century Cold War political economy. I contend that this latter form, too, does not resolve the injustice brought to knowing and representing Africa, and that although the issue that then follows as a result is not the main one pursued in this essay, its implication could be that we describe Africa in ways true to its reality and history only if the institutional edifices supporting both disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity are refashioned.
I am, in other words, ultimately speaking about the possibility of knowledge production itself operating as a mobility — as a highly mobile, constantly shifting, node-swapping, dynamic system of agglomerations. Various names are used to refer to these peoples. All of them speak a common language: Fulfulde. New York: Routledge and Taylor and Francis, They are invisible to his metropolitan gaze.
