A new mediterranean mobilities website has gone live in April 2012. Please visit: www.mediterraneanmobilities.net
mediterranean mobilities is a long-term networking initiative aimed at fostering long-term thinking on the transnational complexity of Mediterranean life.
Taking a 'mobilities perspective' this networking initiative seeks to contribute to debates about the challenges facing the region in the 21st century.
mediterranean mobilities is a distinctive initiative in the landscape of Mediterranean research in the way it seeks to bring together social scientists, engineers, architects and artists to study and raise awareness about the systemic nature of movement and circulation in the Mediterranean. The network is also characterised by its concern with understanding the relationship between different mobilities (e.g. tourism, migration, long distance trade routes and short distance everyday journeys) and their future evolution in the context of growing geopolitical and environmental instabilities.
mediterranean mobilities integrates and connects researchers specifically focused on mobilities, yet it also appeals to scholars working on adjacent areas which can benefit from a sensitivity to the increasingly im/mobile nature of contemporary life.
There is an unexplored potential of collaboration between different disciplines, research groups and networks around the study of the Mediterranean and mediterranean mobilities seeks to contribute to achieve greater cooperation in the emerging Mediterranean academic space.
