Anne Jarrigeon | Anthropologist
18 June 2019
Anne Jarrigeon has studied the ways in which women have learned to deploy internalized knowledge to keep strangers at bay in everyday life, in cities that impose an image of hyper-availability. Being a mobile woman in urban space is often about how to avoid the male gaze, of men themselves, and from billboards.
These videoconferences, given by experienced or up-and-coming researchers in the field of mobility, address a wide range of basic issues, from the mobility turn to mobile methods and the relocation of production. Over time, they’re intended to provide a visual encyclopedia of mobility.

John Urry | Social Scientist
By the end of the 21st century, cars as we know them will be gawped at as dinosaurs in museums. The post-car society will have a flexible, smart-assisted mobility in which private ownership of vehicles is likely to be a thing of the past, predicts Professor John Urry.
