Call for Papers: Moving boundaries in mobilities research

Organised by the University of Cagliari in collaboration with the Cosmobilities Network
Venue: University of Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy)
Dates: 5-7 July 2012.

This conference, funded by the University of Cagliari and organized in collaboration with the Cosmobilities Network, aims at discussing new directions in mobilities research, showcasing the state of the art in the field, and providing a unique opportunity to create lasting links among researchers, especially in the north and the south of Europe.
The language of this event will be English but the range of papers presented will be a reflection of the diversity of concerns, approaches and methodologies informing mobilities research in Europe and beyond.

Young and experienced researchers are invited to submit abstracts for paper presentations. High quality abstracts on any aspect of mobilities are welcomed although submissions addressing the following themes are particularly encouraged:
histories of mobilities
cultures of mobilities
mobilities outside the north Atlantic rim
the spaces and politics of mobility (and immobility) in the Mediterranean city
·   forms of mobility other than car, train and aeroplane
research conducted in collaboration with artists and public and private actors outside academia illustrating the way new knowledge collectives are formed around the use of new ICTs
transnational research involving different institutional settings

Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, is the perfect location for a Cosmobilities event. A crossroad between cultures throughout the centuries - among which Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantins, Aragons, Catalans- it offers one of the most beautiful and longest beaches in the Mediterranean and a crystal-clear sea around, besides an unspoiled natural environment consisting of lagoons, bird sanctuaries and wildlife reserves, as well as museums and archaeological sites, which altogether make it a unique scene in Europe.
