In this essay, I consider issues of migration and im/mobility through experiences as a qualitative researcher of the aftermath of mass violence. In doing so, I consider how the progression of my scholarship has occurred in tandem with the development of my identity as a mother, and contemporary geopolitics, all of which implicate questions about migration and mobility. Attending to the embodied, somatic experiences of both movement and the process of qualitative research, I engage issues of identity, particularly gender, sexuality, race, and nationality. While not re/solving the tensions of qualitative research addressing im/mobility, I illustrate the ongoing relationship between motherhood, movement, and migration.
