GLOBAL MOBILITY HUMANITIES CONFERENCE 2020 (GMHC 2020)
Time & Location
About the Event
The mobilities studies which was initiated by John Urry and his colleagues more than a decade ago, has expanded the problematique of mobility from the social to the geographical, focusing on the issues of the movement of things and information, its technologies and infrastructures, and the network and its complexities of heterogeneous cultures. Recognizing that the phenomena of mobility today are not restricted to the physical, the mobility humanities tries to understand mobility as an essential part of human beings. From the humanities perspective, mobility is practiced physically beyond all the boundaries and we are also defined by how we move. In this sense, we would consider Imagination, Ethics, and Ontology in Mobilities. This conference presents an opportunity for scholars to share their ideas and inquiries at the intersection of mobilities studies and humanities, transcending the conventional divide between the social sciences and humanities. The conference theme, “Moveo, Ergo Sum: Imagination, Ethics, and Ontology of Mobilities,” enables scholars to engage with the mobility humanities from a variety of academic disciplines.
This conference is organized by the Academy of Mobility Humanities (AMH). The AMH invites proposals for panels or individual papers for 2020 GMHC. We welcome submissions of individual papers and panels for this global conference.

1. Humanistic Perspectives on Mobility Studies: Moveo, Ergo Sum
