DOES MOBILITY HAVE A FUTURE? John UrryIs there enough oil to oil the wheels of society? Is liquid modernity based on one liquid, oil? Does oil-based fast movement have a long term future? Or will global mobility and globalisation come to a grinding halt when the supplies of oil begin to decline and prices rise even more dramatically?
Allison Hui - Enthusiasts' travel: future mobilities, future practices
How is the future of mobility tied into the future of practices? Drawing upon a study of bird watchers' travel, this brief paper suggests the value of considering how leisure practices impel travel. Bird watchers' travel to places for performing not out of choice but out of necessity. The future of practices and mobilities are therefore deeply intertwined.
