This introduction presents an overview of key concepts covered in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book distinguishes between event studies and the applied field of event management, and has outlined disciplinary and multi-, cross-, inter-, trans- and post-disciplinary approaches to events research. Post-disciplinarity has been presented as the most contentious, creative and disobedient of the aforementioned epistemic stances. Events organised by maker-oriented movements not only promote the group's artefacts but also carry ideological, political and personal messages. Visual methods, when combined with other methods, can reveal the otherwise invisible patterns of human behaviour. The book explores the key conceptual dimensions needed to engage with mobilities and introduces the reader to what he sees as interconnected dimensions of interruptions, transitions, framings and materialities. Events and festivities are portrayed as important community-building vehicles providing opportunities for preserving traditional cultures of diasporic communities, and also for building local and transnational community.
