This project seeks to investigate the new lives and mobility practice of intra-national migrants moving to Hualien. Those ‘lifestyle’ or ‘counter-urbanization’ migrations not only represent personal mobility practice, but also demonstrate the social-economic dynamics of Hualien. The project is designed to explore the three types of mobility and new lives: organic farm, B&B, and working holiday in Hualien; thus, building on two existing local sectors: tourism-hospitality and agriculture. This program will focus on mobility, new lives, labor, gender, and built-environment by undertaking a series of comparative research studies in Hualien. This research is expected to contribute a social and cultural perspective toward agriculture and tourism studies.
