Call for Papers: Gendering Smart Mobilities

Invitation to submit abstracts for the second of three workshops on Gendering Smart Mobilities in the Nordic Region.

The second workshop will take place in Copenhagen the 20th – 21st of April 2018. The workshop addresses cycling both as an upcoming and sustainable mode of transport in the bigger cities of the Nordic Region and through the lense of biking regimes. Looking at biking practices as a regime, implies the analysis of biking at multiple levels, in terms of culture, economy, planning, and practice. Currently there is a clear division between the Nordic countries in this respect, where DK serves as a model for biking friendly regimes with a high level of overall biking and with a higher equality regarding gender and age. This workshop will focus on the potentials of advancing biking as a daily mode of transport in all Nordic Countries, and address new modes of biking such as mountain- and sports-biking as well as e-biking and bike sharing systems. In what ways are such new modes of biking gendered? How can they be made more inclusive in terms of planning and innovations in designs etc.? How can the bike systems be linked to city wide transportation and access for all?
Further the second workshop aims to deal with sustainable modes of mobility i.e. walking and different forms of public and shared transport.

Confirmed keynote speakers: Mimi Sheller, Director, Center for Mobilities Research and Policy and Professor of Sociology, Drexel University and Malene Freudendal-Pedersen, Space, Place, Mobility and Urban Studies, Designing Human Technologies, Associate Professor, Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University.
