In this Focus, we look at roads broadly speaking as they epitomise the diverse pathways through and around which people devise their own sense of belonging and becoming. The articles assembled, presented initially for the conference “Himalayan Journeys,” are ethnographically informed case studies about people’s mobile engagement with their social and physical landscape.
