Call for Submissions

We welcome analyses of the use of transportation systems that focus on purposeful activity of individuals and organizations (e.g, households and firms) either in pursuit of the good life and other objectives or in coping with transportation not well suited to them. We also welcome analyses of the design of transportation systems that might better enable the conduct of ordinary life in general, and the "good life" in particular. Emanating from Charles Taylor's, Sources of the Self: The Making of Modern Identity among other works, we seek to better integrate the design what individuals hope to do or achieve with their lives.


Description

A session focussed on the analysis of how transportation within cities shapes, and is shaped by, the conduct of ordinary life (the life of production and the life of the family) in general, and the pursuit of the good life in particular.
