According to Hartmut Rosa, mobility no longer refers to space but to the time required to travel across that space. The ever-present display systems at train stations tend to reinforce that very same perception of travel time as an objective, a measurable length of time, rather than a feeling wherein each duration is variable.

Car use has declined in most OCDE countries since the early 2000s; for the first time since the end of World War II, there has been a drop in the proportion of young people who choose to get their driver’s license.

What if inequalities of access and use of digital technologies also gave rise to inequalities relative to mobility? This is the question raised by Dana Diminescu, Hélène-Marie Juteau, Christian Licoppe and Julien Morel in their study of Saint-Denis jobseekers’ exceptional mobility practices. Over the course of two years, the Mines ParisTech researchers will follow 30 jobseekers, in order to understand if and how the use of mobility apps sets people apart in terms of exceptional mobility practices for job seeking.

Can the literature help us understand the driving forces behind and limits of our fascination with the automobile? What do philosophy and experts say about it? By comparing the imaginative thinking of writers with that of philosophers and experts in an original performance, the Forum questions the place of the car since the 20th century and the changes to come in its usage and the imaginary it conveys.
