Description

[Free food and beer at reception after the talk]

Transitions toward more sustainable and equitable cities demand that we develop more dynamic transdisciplinary fields and relational practices that can question the very grounds we work from, make room for excluded voices, and open alternative pathways toward change. This lecture addresses intersections between academic research into mobility justice and more activist stances in the face of climate change and social injustice.

What is mobility studies? What is it for? Who does it? What does it do? This talk will specifically explore how we can mobilize pedagogies in ways that extend beyond the classroom to engage with wider publics in re-imagining and re-making extended urban systems including transport, energy, and communication infrastructures that span micro and macro scales, near and far, horizontal and vertical, slow and fast, North and South, onshore and offshore, urban and rural.

Dr. Sheller is a leading scholar in mobilities studies, often credited with co-creating this field. She is Professor of Sociology at Drexel University, where she is also Founding Director of the Center for Mobilities Research and Policy. She is author and co-editor of nine books. She is co-founder and co-editor of the journal Mobilities and Associate Editor of Transfers: Interdisciplinary Journal of Mobility Studies. Sheller is past President of the International Association for the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility (2014-17).
