New Issue of Transfers: Interdisciplinary Journal of Mobility Studies

Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,

This special section on “Degendering the Driver” explores how gender intervenes in the potential shift from a driver-centered to a driverless car culture. It focuses on representations of imagined futures—prototypes, media images, and popular discourses of driverless cars. This section is followed by Ideas in Motion, Mobility in Art, and various reviews. This issue marks the first under Dagmar Schäfer’s editorship.
