Academic year 2022-3 marks the twentieth anniversary of Lancaster’s Centre for Mobilities Research which was founded by John Urry and Mimi Sheller in 2003. The current CeMoRe team would like to celebrate this special occasion by reaching our to friends and colleagues around the world who have been on the mobilities journey with us in the hope that we can meet with you – virtually or in person – at some point over the coming year.
To this end, we share below our programme of events for 2022-3 which culminates in a strand dedicated to the CeMoRe Anniversary at next year’s Annual T2M Conference. We have yet to finalise details of how the panels will be formed but we are envisaging an in-person event at Lancaster University to run alongside the main conference taking place at Konkuk University in Seoul (South Korea). The hybrid format of the conference will also facilitate the participation of groups and individuals from around the world who would prefer to join us remotely. Further details will be circulated in early 2023.
In the meantime, we would be delighted to welcome colleagues based in the UK to the Lancaster-based events listed below as well the online workshops and seminars.
