Experiencing Networked Urban Mobilities looks at the different experiences of networked urban mobilities. While the focus in the first book is on conceptual and theory-driven perspective, this second volume emphasizes the empirical investigation of networked urban mobilities. This book is a resource for researchers interested in the field to gain easy access and overviews of different themes and approaches represented in the mobilities paradigm.

Malene Freudendal-Pedersen is Associate Professor in Sustainable Mobilities at Roskilde University, Denmark. She has an interdisciplinary background linking sociology, geography, urban planning, and science and technology studies which she has been using to investigate praxes of mobilities and their significance for (future) cities. She is the co-manager of the international Cosmobilities Network, and the co-founder and co-editor of the new journal Applied Mobilities (Taylor & Francis). She is the author of the book Mobility in Daily Life: Between Freedom and Unfreedom.
Katrine Hartmann-Petersen is Associate Professor in Planning and Mobilities at Roskilde University, Denmark. She has a transdisciplinary background investigating the interconnectedness between modern everyday life, urban planning, and mobilities. She also has experience as special advisor in municipality planning departments. She is a member of the Cosmobilities Network taskforce and book review editor of the new journal Applied Mobilities (Taylor & Francis).
Emmy Laura Perez Fjalland holds a master’s degree in Urban Planning Studies and Geography, and is currently a PhD student at Roskilde University, Denmark, and the Danish Architecture Centre. She studies how sharing and collaborative economic cooperations could be part of Danish urban governance and urban planning strategies. She is specifically interested in how different collaborative economic cooperations, communities, and organizations could help perform, develop, and run municipal key activities within environment and welfare. In the context of urban and mobilities studies, she pursues concepts as co-creation, communities, commons, governance, platforms, and process designs.
"This set of vignettes is an important addition to transport scholarship. It invigorates often overlooked and ordinary aspects of moving and waiting and it provides innovative examples of ethnography and participant observation. Pulling together different disciplines in the social sciences, this volume is sure to enliven the expanding critical mobilities research agenda."
