What Is Mobilities?

Posted: October 9th, 2014



The editorial team at Wi:Journal of Mobile Media and the Mobile Media Lab are very pleased to announce the release of our latest issue “What is Mobilities?” with multiple contributions from Communication Studies Department members and alumni.

Guest edited by Dr. David Madden, this issue features 16 interviews with leading mobilities studies scholars. The issue itself emerged from a collaborative interview project that was part of the Differential Mobilities conference in May 2013. It features work from Judith Nicholson, Mimi Sheller, Gerard Goggin, Jennifer Southern, Andra McCartney, Esteban Acuna Cabanzo, Danielle Peers and Lindsay Eales, Arseli Dokumaci, Bianca Freire-Medeiros, Darin Barney, Daniel M. Sutko, Catherine Middleton, Germaine Halegoua, Nancy Cook and David Butz, Natalia Radywyl, and Shelley Smith.

“What is Mobilities” brings a broad range of ideas together and, in doing so, provides multiple points of departure for scholars interested in thinking about contemporary mobilities issues.
