This article highlights the importance of various (im)mobilities which were induced by the massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015. Around 100 news articles published in the two weeks following the earthquake were collected and analyzed. After weaving these articles together into an overarching mobility-centric narrative, the politics of such (im)mobilities are critically considered. The final sections situate this empirical data within the theoretical “mobilities” literature to show how any given mobilities system is always constituted in relation to other (im)mobilities as well as a variety of geographical and political factors to produce a mutually constitutive, even dialectical, web.
