Mobilities in Motion Conference March 21st-23rd
March 14, 2011 —
Drexel's Center for Mobilities Research and Policy will host an international conference "Mobilities in Motion: New Approaches to Emergent and Future Mobilities" from March 21st-23rd, 2011 in Behrakis Hall South, 32nd & Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA.
In the near future the carbon-based mobilities of the 20th century will likely be replaced by alternative transport systems and fuels, and perhaps less mobile societies. At the same time, new mobile social media, locative social networks, and digital arts are handling movement and connectivity in new ways, creating new kinds of hybrid public spaces.
Keynote speakers include Philadelphia's Deputy Mayor for Transportation and Utilities, Rina Cutler, Caren Kaplan of the University of California, Davis, Deborah Cowen of the University of Toronto, and Adriana de Souza e Silva IT University of Copenhagen and North Carolina State University.
This event is open to the Drexel Community and other academics, but registration is required. The full registration fee of $225 (discounted to $150 for students, and for those coming from the Latin American or Caribbean countries), includes a conference dinner, coffee breaks, lunch, and snacks during the conference, as well as a special reception.
