Program - Gendering Smart Mobilities

Oslo, 24th-25th of August 2017

The aim of this two-days’ workshop is to explore the cultural, societal and institutional consequences of the shift towards shared mobility and increasing e-mobility. The focus of attention will be how gender might interface with the shift between the “systems” and “regimes” of automobility and how such models can fertilize Nordic models and co-operations. The workshop will critically consider the logics of a technological fix, which leaves important social and cultural issues unattended. Through exploring the dimensions of technological transitions, human-machine interfaces, conceptualization of technology, new business models etc. the workshop is intended to rethink the concept of mobility in the Nordic regions.
