Call for Papers - “Changing Landscapes for Inclusive Mobility: new research insights and future directions” – RGS/IBG 2018 
[With apologies for cross posting] 
Dear all, 
 
We are inviting abstract submissions from researchers and postgraduate students to the TGRG sponsored session “Changing Landscapes for Inclusive Mobility: new research insights and future directions” at the RGS with IBG Annual International Conference, which will take place from 28 to 31 August 2018 in Cardiff, UK. 
 
Session Convenorsː Professor Karen Lucas, University of Leeds, Dr Daniel Oviedo, University College London, Dr Ersilia Verlinghieri, University of Oxford - With the PGRs at ITS Leeds, UCL Barlett School of Planning and TSU Oxford 
 
Since the late 1990s, it has been well established in the transport geography literatures that full participation in our contemporary societies requires high degrees of mobility. Following the seminal UK SEU report (2003), a large body of international research has highlighted the connection between transport and social exclusion. Despite these early insights, equity concerns are still poorly integrated within transport policy. Challenges remain to change our transport systems to support more inclusive, socially sustainable mobilities that also respect the planetary environmental boundaries. 
This session welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions that discuss the interactions between the mobility landscape and social inequalities in different geographical contexts. Invited topics under the general theme are open, but some suggestions are: 
 
•             Relationships between the mobilities, accessibilities and social inclusion landscape and the fractures therein; 
•             New theoretical perspectives - mobilities turn, urban and transport justice, capabilities approach, future ecologies, political ecology, etc.; 
•             Novel methods to identify the accessibility and mobility needs, concerns and perceptions of disadvantaged groups; 
•             The role of mobilities in fostering the livelihoods and wellbeing of local communities; 
•             Linkages between mobilities, social capital and social exclusion in different geographical contexts, and mobility cultures; 
•             The social dimensions of sustainable transport policies, and their ability of protecting the rights of future generations; 
•             Social equity in the context of transport policy and project appraisal and evaluation; 
•             Including diverse voices and localised participation in transport planning processes. 
 
Full details of the conference can be found here<http://www.rgs.org/WhatsOn/ConferencesAndSeminars/Annual+International+Conference/Annual+international+conference.htm> 
 
Postgraduate research students are particularly encouraged to submit a paper for this session. TGRG has a small prize for the best postgraduate presentation in any TGRG session at the RGS-IBG 2018 Conference. If you wish to enter for the Postgraduate Prize a full paper should be submitted to the Chair and Secretary of TGRG prior to the conference date for judging. For more information and to find out about entry criteria please contact TGRG postgraduate rep Deborah Mifsud ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). 
 
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit an abstract of your work (up to 300 words) along with authors’ names, affiliations and contacts by Friday 9th February 2018 to the session convenors: 
•             Professor Karen Lucas, University of Leeds, [log in to unmask] 
•             Dr Daniel Oviedo, University College London, [log in to unmask] 
•             Dr Ersilia Verlinghieri, University of Oxford, [log in to unmask] 
 
We will aim to advise whether or not papers have been accepted for the session by Friday 23rd February. 
 
Best wishes, 
 
Ersilia
