New 'Mobilities' journal

The new 'Mobilities' journal for 2006, edited by Kevin Hannam, Mimi Sheller, and John Urry, will have its first issue Janurary 2006:

Mobilities encompasses both the large-scale movements of people, objects, capital, and information across the world, as well as more local processes of daily transportation, movement through public space, and the travel of material things within everyday life. Recent developments in transportation and communications infrastructures, along with new social and cultural practices of mobility have elicited a number of new research initiatives for understanding the connections between these diverse mobilities.

Mobilities will publish original, theoretically-informed research which is international in scope as well as in authorship. The journal seeks to address topical issues and foster scholarly debate. All submissions will be subject to double-blind peer review.

  • Travel and communications
