Dear all,

Just a gentle reminder about this session's CfA. DL next Monday 5th Feb.

Sorry again for cross-postings.

Best regards,

Esther

The 2018 The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Annual International
> Conference
> <http://www.rgs.org/WhatsOn/ConferencesAndSeminars/Annual+International+Conference/Timeline.htm> will
> be held at Cardiff University in Cardiff, from Tuesday 28 to Friday 31
> August 2018. The chair's theme for the 2018 Annual Conference is
> Geographical landscapes / changing landscapes of geography.
>
>
>
> Esther Anaya (Imperial College London, UK), Angela Curl (University of
> Canterbury, NZ) and Julie Clark (University of the West of Scotland, UK)
> invite abstracts for consideration for the following Transport Geography
> Research Group <https://tgrg.wordpress.com/>-sponsored session:
>
>
>
> Title: Cycle and bike-sharing accessibility and equity in the changing
> urban transport landscape.
>
>
>
> The landscape of urban transport is ever changing, and doing it faster
> than ever, to the point that “disruption is the new normal”. Cycling, cycle
> infrastructure and public bike sharing schemes are increasingly part of the
> dynamic urban transport landscape. The benefits of cycling have been widely
> documented and evidenced but more knowledge is needed to assess whether
> these benefits are at reach of all the population groups. While cycling,
> cycle infrastructure and public bike sharing schemes offer the potential to
> be socially inclusive, shift the focus away from car-based society and
> provide opportunities for interaction for those marginalised by private car
> based mobility, the reality is often different. Cyclists in general and
> users of public bike sharing schemes tend to have higher incomes, high
> levels of formal education, and are disproportionately white, middle aged
> and male.
>
> But cycling inequalities are complex. They have been related to the
> generation of resistance or hostility towards the presence of cyclists or
> cycling facilities in the streets, known as “bikelash”. They can
> potentially contribute to gentrification processes, in which only an
> advantaged part of the society receives the benefits of cycling policies.
> Newly implemented bicycle paths and bike share schemes have been critiqued
> on issues of equity and gentrification, particularly in the US.
>
> Inclusive cycling mobilities are related to the use of space, in which
> power relations take place and need to be considered. Inequality issues
> become crucial to ensure a transition towards a more sustainable and just
> mobility future.
>
> We welcome papers exploring accessibility and equity issues for cycling
> and bike sharing, including, but not limited to:
>
> •          Evaluation of cycling, cycling infrastructure and the use of
> bike share (including dockless schemes) among those likely to be excluded
> or with additional mobility needs: Elderly, migrants and refugees, women,
> ethnic minorities, disabled and lower income groups.
>
> •          Inclusiveness of new cycling mobility services such as
> dockless/floating bikeshare schemes and more widely, of the new
> technologies applied to cycling mobility, for example: the use of apps,
> sensors, electronic devices.
>
> •          Approaches to inclusive urban transport policies relating to
> cycling and bike sharing.
>
> •          Empirical or conceptual papers on cycling inequalities,
> justice, power relations and inclusivity.
>
>
>
> Keywords: cycling, bikesharing, equity, inclusive mobilities, mobility
> justice.
>
>
>
> Please send abstracts of 250-300 words indicating title, author(s) and
> affiliation(s) by Monday 5 February 2018 to Esther Anaya <
> [log in to unmask]>, Angela Curl <[log in to unmask]> and
