We seek to organize a number of sessions at the 2014 AAG meeting in Tampa to explore issues pertinent to the study of human and non-human mobilities. We welcome papers that address the social, cultural, political, environmental, economic, theoretical, and methodological issues related to the geographies of mobility. Topics may include but are not limited to: (im)mobility and social differentiation and inequality; (im)mobilities of the oppressed, subjugated and persecuted; (im)mobility and social exclusion; experience of (im)mobility; politics of (im)mobility; migration; commuting; leisure travel; tourism; mobility by different transport modes; sustainable mobility; mobility and resilience; disasters, natural hazards, and mobility; mobility, wellbeing and health; mobility, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; space-time modeling and GIS-based analysis of mobility; mobility research methods; and other relevant areas.
If you are interested in participating in these sessions, please send a short abstract of no more than 250 words to Mei-Po Kwan ([log in to unmask]) and Tim Schwanen ([log in to unmask]) by November 8, 2013. Guidelines for preparing abstracts are available at:
Please contact the organizers if you have any questions.
