About this product
- DescriptionIn social theory and sociology, time and travel in techlogical cultures is one of the new and challenging research topics in the 'mobilities turn'. Yet surprisingly, contemporary practices of mobility have till w, seen only limited theorization within these disciplines. By analyzing historic and contextualized transit practices, this revealing book argues that travel cant w simply be reduced to getting from A to B; it is an integrated part of everyday life. In this area, researching how problems can be identified as dilemmas and reformulated as design problems helps create a new vocabulary; one which will t only change the agenda in the debate on mobility problems in the public domain, but will also suggest new ways of theorizing mobility invations. In this fascinating book, author Peters: * develops a conceptual framework to study contemporary transit practices and evaluate invation strategies * gives new insights regarding historic and contemporary design strategies and regarding invations related to travel in techlogical cultures * gives special attention to electronic timespaces and ICT based mobility invations * investigates cases of travel in techlogical cultures, car travel, air travel, and cycling in Dutch towns. An original and provocative contribution to the emerging field of mobilities, this book will become an essential resource for advanced undergraduate, post-graduate, researchers and practitioners in the fields of sociology, geography, spatial planning, policy and transportation studies.
