Exploring Networked Urban Mobilities explores different conceptual and theoretical angles between social practices and urban environments, culture, infrastructures, technologies, and the politics of mobility. The book introduces the concept of networked urban mobilities and lays out a research agenda for the future of mobility studies. Each of the contributors represents a specific approach in the field and each article provides cutting-edge theoretical and conceptual reflections on the topic. Mobility here is understood as a heterogeneous phenomenon that shapes modern societies and cities by emerging in different dimensions: as physical, social, cultural, and digital mobilities.
"An odyssey of physical, social, cultural and virtual mobilities. Clear-eyed and compelling. The book really is a milestone."
Professor Anthony Elliott, Dean of External Engagement, University of South Australia
