Argument

The Swiss Mobility Conference (SMC) will take place on Monday the 19th of November and Tuesday the 20th of November, at the University of Lausanne - Geopolis Building.

The objective of SMC is to provide a place for discussion and debate for researchers in humanities and social sciences working on various forms of mobility.

Presentations will address the mobilities in their diversity (housing choices, modal practices, multi-local dwelling, tourism, etc.). They can register in the following research areas:

  • theoretical debates (and in particular the contributions of social theories to the study of mobilities)
  • methodological innovations (using mobile methods)
  • public policy and decision making in mobility
  • regulation of mobility and its tools
  • the actors and their logics of action (residential choice, modal practices, multilocal living, etc.)
  • the norms and values underlying mobility and social inequality
  • temporality and spatiality of mobility
  • mobility prospective

The keynote speaker of the 3rd edition of the SMC is Mimi Scheller from Drexel University. The title of her presentation is the following: “What is Mobility Justice?”

The provisional program of the conference is available online: https://drive.switch.ch/index.php/s/B9GPmiDZwQwi7RL.
