Over the last decade, there has been increasing interest in geography and related fields in a critical perspective on studies of transportation and mobility. Supplementing long-standing research on the social and political aspects of the movement of people and goods, this recent work has incorporated the power relations involved in mobility/immobility; explored the ways that racial, ethnic, and gender identities are co-constructed with the modes we take; discussed how regional imaginaries are intertwined with the production of transportation infrastructure; and analyzed how places and spaces are constructed by flows as much as by stable features of the built environment. Critical logistics and mobility justice are some of the bodies of work that have developed in this vein, with a “mobility turn” apparent in related fields such as design, tourism studies, and ethnic studies. Papers in this session focus on the socio-cultural aspects of mobilities and transport.
