Call for Applications for the T2M International Summer School
“The Passenger: Mobility in Modernity”
Berlin, Germany, 30th September- 6th October 2011
The International Association for the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility (T2M) invites applications for the first T2M International Summer School, The Passenger: Mobility in Modernity, to be held in Berlin, Germany.
The School is organized with the support of the Centre for Technology and Society of the Berlin Institute of Technology (TU Berlin) and will be conducted in English. The Volkswagen Stiftung is generously providing financial support.
The School is intended to bring together representatives from different disciplinary perspectives under the common theme of “passengers”, a concept understood to include travellers, voyagers, migrants, nomads and any other mobile persons moving by any means of transport, including foot.
Moving beyond traditional approaches to mobility, the Summer School will encourage cross- and trans-disciplinary exchanges between psychology, geography, anthropology, sociology, tourism research and other humanities and social sciences in addition to history.
