Organized under the research program Settling in Motion1 and the Italian-French Associated Laboratory MediterraPolis, this conference focuses on urban mobility, from the start of the modern era to the present.
The city has always represented a strong attraction point for migration and, in general, constituted a privileged location for the deployment of human mobility in all its forms.
Mobility types that involve the city as a point of arrival or departure are many and may differ in terms of the underlying reasons (work, study, family, consumption, healthcare, etc.), the duration or frequency (definitive, temporary, occasional, daily, etc.), and in terms of the amplitude of the displacement, which can cross the state boundaries or be limited to a few hundred meters.
This call looks at intra-urban mobility. That is, all shapes of displacement that have their origin and destination within an urban area, regardless of the reason and the frequency with which they take place. The possible topics of interest include residential mobility studies, changes in housing, and those on daily, commuter and non-commuter travellers. Continuer la lecture de Moving Around in Town. Practices, Pathways, and Contexts of Intra-Urban Mobility from 1600 to the Present Day
