This is a list of essential terms of the mobility. Your contributions help keep the list fresh and up to date: you can propose new words or redefine those already on the list by refining or supplementing their current definitions. Each lexicon entry comes with both a brief definition and a more detailed explanation, accompanied by a bibliography. Some definitions include suggestions for further discussion or research opportunities. Wherever a lexicon entry appears on the site, its brief definition is available as well, and if so required, you can follow a link to see the complete definition.
Re-placement is defined as the crossing of functional boundaries of geographical space without crossing the social and cognitive boundaries that result from the socialization to the geographical space of the individual who has moved. The concept of re-placement relegates the functionalist approaches of geographical accessibility and the notion of potentiality to the background, in order to emphasize the relationship to geographical space and examine socio-spatial segregations from the standpoint of daily mobilities.
