The Research Platform Mobile Cultures and Societies, University of Vienna, is pleased to announce

Entangled Im/Mobilities: Perspectives from the Humanities and Social Sciences

Academic conference, 18-20 March 2021, Online

The conference covers a wide variety of topics and combines reflections from the humanities and the social sciences. One of its biggest aims is to explore how a nuanced view of entangled im/mobilities could reveal complex relations of meaning, shaped by geographic, cultural, historical and material contexts.  Furthermore, seeing mobility as closely entangled with immobility, a number of participants will explore how mobilities and immobilities interact and are co-produced.

The program includes twelve panel discussions, keynote lectures by Sara Upstone and Peter Adey, film screenings and a virtual art presentation, all open to the public upon registration.
