The Venue

The Centre for Mobilities Research (Cemore), established in 2003, is a dynamic hub for interdisciplinary research on all things mobile. We develop leading social theory and combine it with grounded, policy-oriented empirical research and innovation. In our work with partners in diverse organisations, we develop transformative approaches to making mobile life sustainable into the long-term.

Inspired by the work of John Urry, Cemore brings together a flourishing transdisciplinary community of researchers, artists, designers and research ‘users’. We host intellectual debates amongst a 1000+ strong international network on our Cemore mailing list and website. We set up the journal Mobilities (Impact Factor:1.172), which is the main forum for mobilities research on a global level, and two book series – Changing Mobilities (Routledge) and Studies in Mobilities, Literature and Culture (Springer). Recent books by Cemore members include Cargo Mobilities (Birtchnell, Savitzky, Urry), Global Garbage (Lindner and Meissner), Drivetime: literary excursions in automotive consciousness (Pearce 2016), Transport Policy: Learning Lessons from History (Divall, Hine, Pooley 2016), What is the Future? (Urry 2016).
