“Contact and Connections”: Travel and Mobility Studies Symposium

Thursday 27th June 2013, University of Warwick

Wolfson Research Exchange Seminar Rooms

Keynote speakers:

Dr Cathy Waters (University of Kent)

Professor Tim Youngs (Nottingham Trent University) 

Registration is now open for the first annual symposium of the University of Warwick Travel and Mobility Studies Research Network, on the theme of “Contact and Connections”.

The symposium aims to address the various connections and forms of contact produced through different forms and representations of travel practice. How does travel connect cultures? What new cultural formations are produced through the process of travel? What are the implications of connection across local, national and global mobile networks? How does travel connect people to the spaces around them and through which they move? What new theoretical connections are produced through the intersections of travel and mobility theory with other disciplines?

Registration is free, but please visit http://go.warwick.ac.uk/travelstudies  to reserve a place and to view the full programme.

Enquiries can be directed to Dr Charlotte Mathieson c.e.mathieson@warwick.ac.uk or Dr Tara Puri T.Puri@warwick.ac.uk
