Next Research Colloquium: 20th November: ‘Becoming a Passenger’

20th November 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm GMT

This is a new initiative to facilitate engagement with Cemore visitors and fellows, as well as researchers at Lancaster who study mobilities or use the mobilities paradigm. Mainly aimed at PhD students, but staff and visitors are more than welcome,  it is an opportunity for us to discuss ideas in progress, develop concepts, methodologies, collaborations. It will run 2.30-4pm every other Tuesday until the end of Lent term (22nd March 2019). The focus is on work in progress, and ongoing research. Participants will have the opportunity to present aspects of their work or their thinking  in a very friendly environment in order to get critical constructive feedback.

In each session, one person will present their work for up to 30 minutes followed by an hour of questions and discussion. If you wish to present, please get in touch with Jessie Carbutt at cemore@lancaster.ac.uk, explaining what date works best for you and also including a summary of the research you wish to discuss. Please refer to the table below for the current schedule and spaces available.

The next upcoming Cemore Research Colloquium will be held 2.30-4pm, 20th November in the Mobslab (B37, Bowland North, Lancaster University). Our presenter will be visiting PhD student from Aalborg University, Denmark, Andrea Victoria Hernandez Bueno. She will discuss work in progress on the theme ‘Becoming a Passenger’. Please see below for the abstract:

‘Becoming a Passenger’

How does one ‘become’ a passenger? How is it experienced? How does ‘design’ prevent or facilitate that process and ‘mobile situations’? Taking point of departure of the mentioned main research questions, this colloquium will open the floor to discuss preliminary empirical data analyses of the PhD project ‘Becoming a passenger’- exploring the passenger experience and airport design – which took place in CPH airport, Denmark, as the case study (part of AirCiF – Airport City Futures project). Focusing on data triangulation from different methods – tracking technologies (eye tracking, thermal cameras) and traditional methods (ethnographic studies, interviews, surveys) – the idea is to discuss the preliminary findings and ways of understanding the relation between different types of data in order to draw, and open up, theoretical and conceptual discussions toward the creation of ‘mobilities design’ ‘guidelines’ for transit (airport) spaces.
