The View from Above: Patterns of Sociality and Mobility

The view from above-a bird's-eye perspective-adds value to our anthropological endeavor (the view from below). In this way, ethnographic qualitative research, based on narrative accounts, is augmented by "grounded visualization" - processing and incorporating of received qualitative and quantitative data into the existing maps of the region. Interpretation of the resulting visualization will serve as a tool for analysis and popularization of the project results. Additionally, a questionnaire-based survey on different mobilities and their impacts on social configurations is carried out alongside the ethnographic research.
