Simon Cook - Organiser

Co-Producing Mobilities

This session aims to creatively engage with the conference theme head-on by exploring the co-production of mobilities - both the practices and the intellectual field. Bringing together geographers looking at mobility from a diverse range of perspectives allows for a collaborative engagement with key issues emerging in studies of mobility, transport and movement. The unique session aspires to mobilise new pathways and potentialities for the understanding of mobility practices and studies of mobility.

In the activity-based first half (in the field), we will engage with and creatively record/’follow’ different modes of urban travel through a range of methods, highlighting the means by which they can be understood as co-produced. It will challenge the study of mobilities to go beyond the journey/subject itself and ask what is entangled before, after and in-between the actual moments of movement. In the second part of the session, a roundtable discussion will be held to explore the connections and understandings gained and the implications of these co-productions - what difference might it make in scholarship and practice to see mobilities as produced by - and producing - complex webs, how may this lead to different ways of doing, reading, writing, collaborating and communicating mobilities?
