Interesting Gatherings Watch

L’esperienza del domani / Technology for Everyday Life and Culture - Interaction Design Institute Ivrea - Saturday 28 June, 2003

Alternative Mobility Futures Conference - Lancaster University - January 2004

This international Conference seeks to explore the new possibilities for ‘dwelling in mobility’ and for ‘mobilising dwelling’ that are the focus of recent work in sociology, geography, science studies, women’s studies, and transport, tourism, and travel studies. As mobile connectivity begins to occur in new ways, what hybridisations of the mover and the moved, the dweller and the dwelling, the human and the digital are occurring and what are some of their likely consequences? What effects will these emerging alternative mobility futures have on the constitution of the bodily, the local, the regional, the national, the diasporic and the global?

I can't believe I didn't find out about this until the paper proposal deadline had past - but it will be well worth the trip to Lancaster!
