*Call for artists: *Exhibition opportunity at International Mobilities 
conference: *Mobile Utopia: Pasts, Presents, Futures.*

The Mobile Utopia conference at Lancaster University (November 2017) 
will include an exhibition of artworks and a catalogue, offering the 
opportunity to explore and promote artists contribution to the field. 
  Further details of the conference themes are in the call below. A 
limited number of bursaries are available for exhibiting artists to 
attend the conference if not in full time acacemic posts.

Mobilities research takes place across multiple disciplines and uses 
movement as a methodological, critical and theoretical lens to ask how 
people, things, materials, data, media and communications are mobile and 
immobile. In parallel a ‘mobilities turn’ can be identified in art 
practices that include (but are not exclusive to): walking, cycling, 
driving, shipping, flight, human and animal migrations, global networks, 
flows of information, social media, biological contagion, tracking, mail 
art, virtual worlds, locative media, travel, kinetics, robotics and 
mobile devices.

We welcome abstracts from artists working with mobility or movement in 
any media.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Exhibition organisers,

Jen Southern, Emma Rose, Linda O’Keeffe

*Mobile Utopia: Pasts, Presents Futures*

Cemore|T2M|Cosmobilities Conference  - 2-5 November 2017, Centre for 
Mobilities Research, Lancaster University

Recognising the global uncertainties of the Anthropocene, we invite 
reflections on utopia (and dystopia) that explore how societies shape, 
and have been shaped by, complex im*|*mobilities, from microbial to big 
data mobilities, from horse-drawn carriages to driverless cars, from 
migration to planetary jet streams.

This joint Cemore|T2M|Cosmobilities conference will bring together 
historians, researchers, artists, policy-makers, designers, and 
innovators to explore *Mobile Utopia: Pasts, Presents, Futures*. The 
Centre for Mobilities Research 
<http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/fass/wp/cemore/> (CeMoRe) at Lancaster 
University, the International Association for the History of Transport, 
Traffic and Mobility <http://t2m.org/> (T2M) and the Cosmobilities 
Network <http://www.cosmobilities.net/> have joined together to invite 
contributions across the spectrum of mobile utopian themes.

We invite proposals deploying utopia as a heuristic and creative 
methodology – rather than as a narrative closed system – which 
challenges our assumptions about what has been possible in the past and 
what will be possible and preferable in the future. We welcome 
reflections from any city, country or place, in relation to any theme, 
scale, or period in history. In addition, proposals may address any 
aspect of the history, and social, cultural, economic, technological, 
ecological and political aspects of the diverse dimensions of 
im|mobility. Proposals are encouraged to use a range of formats, 
academic, creative and otherwise, as outlined in the call for papers 

We welcome contributions from any academic perspective or discipline, as 
well as contributions by artists, professionals, policy makers and 
practitioners. Recent entrants to the research field and doctoral 
students are especially welcome, with reduced rates and travel bursaries 
available in some cases.

We look forward to welcoming you in Lancaster.
