[VIRTUAL] Sustainable mobility and gender issues with WOMENVAI and University Aldo Moro (191401)

Scholars have thought about gender and mobility over the past decades. It can be summarized in terms of the core question driving that line of research. In essence, one asks:
‘How does movement shape gender?’ and considers problems such as how processes of mobility/immobility shed light on the shifting power relations embedded in gender.
The other line of research asks, ‘How does gender shape movement?’ and focuses on how gendered processes create, reinforce or change patterns of daily mobility.
It is interesting that whereas each of these non-intersecting literatures starts from different assumptions about what is important, exhibits distinctive methodologies, as well as different understandings of gender, mobility and which elements of context are important, the two strands arrive at a common fundamental message.
