thomas nail We live in an age of movement. More than at any other time in his- tory, people and things move longer distances, more frequently, and faster than ever before. All that was solid melted into air long ago and is now in full circulation around the world like dandelion seeds adrift on turbulent winds. We ﬁnd ourselves, in the early twenty-ﬁrst century, in a world where every major domain of human activity has become increasingly deﬁned by motion. We have entered a new historical era deﬁned in large part by movement and mobility and are now in need of a new historical on- tology appropriate to our time. The observation that the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-ﬁrst was marked by an increasingly “liquid” and “mobile modernity” is now some- thing widely recognized in the scholarly literature at the turn of the century. Today, however, our orientation to this event is quite different. Almost twenty years into the twenty-ﬁrst century we now ﬁnd ourselves situated on the other side of this heralded transition. The question that confronts us today is thus a new one: how to fold all that has melted back
