In this final report on mobilities, I discuss research published between late 2014 and early 2016, focussing upon three key themes. I examine how recent work on medical bodies and race advances long-standing concerns with the mobile body. I then trace emerging philosophical and political writings on the themes of speed and ‘accelerationism’, before examining the contributions of mobility historians and transport historians to academic work on mobility. I conclude with some thoughts about the multi-disciplinary nature of contemporary mobilities research and the current state of the field.
