Mobilities examines the large-scale movements of people, objects, capital, and information across the world, as well as more local processes of daily transportation, movement through public and private space and the travel of material objects in everyday life. New transportation and digital infrastructures and novel social and cultural practices pose important challenges for coordinating and governing mobilities and for mobility rights and questions of ‘access’. These ‘mobility’ issues have generated new research methods and theories.

Co-founded by John Urry, Mimi Sheller and Kevin Hannam in 2006, mobilities stands as a testament to John Urry’s (CeMoRe, Lancaster Sociology) pioneering work and leadership in the ‘new mobilities paradigm’ in social science research. Since 2016 CeMoRe Associate Director, David Tyfield, serves as Co-Editor. Pennie Drinkall, also CeMoRe Lancaster, is Managing Editor.

Mobilities publishes original, theoretically-informed research which is international in scope. The journal seeks to address major topical issues and to foster scholarly debate around the ‘mobilities’ turn. More information can be found on the Mobilities homepage.
