Mobilities Cultures Colloquium

Date: 5 September 2014 Time: 10.00am to 5.00pm

Venue: Lancaster University Conference Centre MR2

Organised by Lynne Pearce with keynote by Peter Merriman, Aberystwyth.

'Mobilities Cultures' brings together people who draw upon literary/cultural texts in their mobilities research (e.g., sociologists, geographers, environmentalists, those working in transport studies)and Humanities scholars (across the disciplines) whose research has a mobilities dimension.

The day will begin with a keynote lecture by Pete Merriman - a geographer who has worked with literary and other texts in his research on automobility for many years - and will be followed by x3 panels of x3 speakers (see below for a list of papers and the bios of the presenters).

We are very much hoping that the day will be an opportunity for colleagues from across the disciplines with an interest in the cultural representation of mobilities to get together, and all participants will be invited to post a Bio on the website to capitalise on the networking potential of the event. Nearer the time we will also invite participants to post PDFs of publications / posters on the site if they wish.
