Short Abstract

How do we develop and use transport technologies and design the infrastructure? How did we plan, understand, and interpret roads and routes? And how will we travel and make the technologies of mobility (and immobility) in the future?

Long Abstract

Spatial mobility is an essential part of human existence in the world that has determinant role in shaping human society and culture. The technologies and infrastructures of spacial mobility change over history radically causing a metamorphosis on social organisation and cultural formations. Given the large population flows that still going on e.g. around the Mediterranean basin and which employ some of the most primordial techniques of mobility (e.g. walking) or e.g. the more common but massive phenomenon of commuting from increasingly larger distances on daily basis; questions around the future of techniques and technologies of mobility are posed anew. How do we develop and use transport technologies and design the infrastructure? How did we plan, understand, and interpret roads and routes in the past? And how will we travel and make the technologies of mobility (and immobility) in the future? These are some of the questions of the panel, focused on legacies and futures of transportation, infrastructures and mobility. In this panel we are looking for ethnographic examples and theoretical explanations about the modes of travel and types of infrastructure and what they can tell us about people and their practices.

Hi all!


Hopefully one of you will know... 


For the last couple of months i've applied to different programs for MA in Anthropology in a couple of Universities in Europe. Since i'm an international students, I've searched for full scholarships as well. BUT

I haven't found yet exctly what I'm looking for. I'm trying to find an Ethnomusicology (Anthropology of music) program.

Is there anyone in this group who might know something about any MA programs in Europe (not necessarily in English, I'm open to learning new languages)? (starting not earlier then June 2011).


Would love any help,

Thank you!

Hi all, it's so nice to see familiar faces and names. I am Davide, a social anthropologist living in Italy (Bergamo). I do research on trust, corruption and informal practices in Slovakia, Hungary and Czech Republic. When I am tired of Central Europe I go to Japan, but then I get even more tired...
