Coming up: Mobility Cultures Colloquium at Lancaster, September 2014

I’m very pleased to have been invited to speak at the Mobility Cultures Colloquium at the Centre for Mobilities Research, Lancaster University, on 5th September 2014.

‘Mobility Cultures’ brings together people who draw upon literary/cultural texts in their mobilities research (e.g., sociologists, geographers, environmentalists, those working in transport studies)and Humanities scholars (across the disciplines) whose research has a mobilities dimension.

I will be speaking on Victorian literary mobilities and the case of Dickens’s Bleak House, developing ideas from this article with material from my current book project. I’m especially looking forward to approaching this work more from the theoretical perspective of mobilities/geography frameworks, particularly after Peter Merriman’s interesting talk on this subject at the What is Space workshop at Warwick this week.
