Stranded: Lava, dust, people and aeroplanes

Workshop 27 May 2010, 11am - 4:30pm, Bowland North Seminar Room 25

Organised by: David Barton, Monika Buscher, John Urry

In this workshop we discuss the immobilization of thousands of travellers caused by the volcanic ash from Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano. We would like to invite presentations on experiences, implications and inspiration, including:

  • pleasures and anxieties of enforced waiting, uncertainty and delayed arrival
  • 'slow travel' and novel forms of travel
  • experiences of silences and absence of contrails across our land- and cityscapes
  • communication practices, use of social technologies and ICT
  • implications for the economy, politics and mobility futures
  • emergency management and leadership
  • unified air traffic system and standards
